The size of the museum is a little deceptive because there are five floors. However, there is an atrium that extends from the bottom to the top of the interior and thereby limiting the exhibit space. However, the exhibits are that good that every visit...More

We were in a Jewish group and had a great Doccen. The Bernstein exhibit was very good. The rest of the museum telling the history of Jews in the United States was excellent no matter what religion you are.

From earliest records to current events with a special feature (currently Leonard Bernstein) this museum offers a day’s adventure into a time log of both Jewish national and international concurrent events. Very enjoyable,me specially since we lucked up on free Friday to visit!
