Overview
More
The Jewish Museum of Florida-FIU is the only Museum dedicated to telling the story of 250 years of Florida Jewish heritage, arts and culture. The museum is housed in two adjacent lovingly restored historic buildings, at 301 Washington Avenue on South Beach, that were once synagogues for Miami Beach's first Jewish congregation. The museum's focal point is its core exhibit, "MOSAIC: Jewish Life in Florida, 1763 to Present" and its temporary history and art exhibits that change periodically. A Collections and Research Center, several films, Timeline Wall of Jewish history, museum Store filled with unique items and Bessie's Bistro complete the experience for visitors of all ages and backgrounds. The museum is accredited by the American Alliance of Museums.

The permanent collections could use improvement and expansion. The temporary exhibitions are worthwhile. The staff is knowledgeable and very willing to give free tours.

Really interesting museum. Tells the story of Jews in S. Florida. Surprisingly not what you would expect. Great judaica store with some fun and unique items. Also they do tours of Jewish South Beach and revolving exhibitions.

This museum clearly traces the history of the Jewish people in Florida and more specifically in Southern Florida. Housed as it is in two former synagogues is most appropriate. While there, if available, include a walking tour with Howard Brayer which adds entire dimension to...More

Not sure about parking we did not have a car but it looks fairly uncongested in the area. There is a small entry fee.
