Jewish Museum Milwaukee Reviews & Ratings
I'd forgotten Houdini was from Wisconsin. Or rather settled here for a time in his youth. Anyway, the special exhibit gives a nice overview of one of Wisconsin's favorite sons and his life. No Houdini artifacts though and good reminder to this lapsed magic fan of his life and accomplishments. The Houdini themed escape room was fun. The rest was interesting too with a good overview of the Jewish immigrant experience in Milwaukee, the Jewish community and it's contributions to industry and commerce in Milwaukee and America.
The museum is not large, but you will fill up an afternoon if you take your time through it. Very informative and laid out well. Enjoyed my time there.
Wonderful organization - we're proud to be members. The archivist, Jay, met with us to talk about family history research - very helpful!
Really well done museum of Jewish history in Milwaukee. Chagall exhibit on le cirque excellent. Milwaukee's circus parade history display fabulous.
Good place to find out about the history of the Jewish people in Milwaukee. Went on the Museum Mile day, but admission isn't much other days. Special exhibits also.
