The Jewish Museum Of Florida was set up in 1763 in two restored former synagogues where you will get firsthand knowledge of the Jewish life in Latin America and Florida. Over a hundred thousand artefacts, historical objects, memorabilia, photographs, religious objects and documents are showcased here to speak on behalf of the Jewish Heritage in Florida. The main highlight of Jewish Museum Of Florida is the MOSAIC: Jewish Life in Florida where you can explore the exhibits with the help of a guidebook. The MOSAIC is equipped with over five hundred photographs and artefacts depicting Jewish Experience. The temporary exhibits are displayed every year along with the travelling exhibits. The Collection & Research Center also gives extensive information about the Jewish history while communicating with Jews and non-Jews informally.

Very inviting, well-curated, informative museum with insightful and friendly docents. Dives deep into the crucial role of Miami's Jewish community in the city's history, and the impact of Miami on the community (it's an art deco synagogue!). Contemporary and historical art from around the world is also featured. If you're in Miami looking for museums, this is essential.
Very small space compared to other museums, but if you have a serious interest in Judiasm or other religions... The Jewish Museum is definitely worth the trip. Very friendly staff & funny security guard today... overall great experience. They do offer tours too! (But I didn’t go on one since I like to explore at my own pace).
I loved this museum so much that I trained to be a docent here. +Very interesting "Mosaic" perm exhibit, plus 2-3 special exhibits. +Museum housed in important art-deco former synagogue in South-beach area. +Beautiful Judaica very reasonably priced in gift shop. (- cafe closed and no kosher eatery nearby ;(
Great exhibits that were very informative and super friendly staff. Linda, one of the volunteers at the museum offered to give us a tour and she was very knowledgeable and welcoming.
Definitely a nice place to visit if your looking for some cultural and history. It's a very beautiful and informative place.
