This museum isn't terribly big, but it's well-curated and has interesting artifacts from throughout Jewish history. There were several beautiful menorahs, and they have special exhibits here - I believe the current one is on Auschwitz. I wish that there had been more on Jewish...More

Very interesting to see actual artifacts from other museums & auschwitz! I have visited many exhibits and never seen these items. Interesting not only seeing them but reading the history behind them.

I went to museum and was fascinated by the displays and artefacts on Jewish history and culture. I spent about a couple of hours there to see all the displays. It was clean, organized, and well lit.
