National Museum Of American Jewish History - Review

It’s always a fascinating to hear the same story told through different perspectives, to see the same world through different eyes. Here, in the historic centre of Philadelphia, in the middle of all the stories told by the major landmarks of American history, the Jewish experience and evolution is commemorated in a special museum. Through thousands of documents and images and a number of films and interactive exhibits, the museum chronologically explains the impact the Jewish community has had on the USA and vice versa – politically, socially and militarily. Its highly informative and evocative exhibits have been gathered since 1976, growing from a humble collection of 40 items to an irreplaceable treasure of 20000+.  What’s truly fascinating is the way the museum also captures the struggle to maintain Jewish identity in a culture that is fast becoming homogenous. If you love history and if you love stories, don’t miss this place.

National Museum Of American Jewish History, Philadelphia Reviews

  • As with any Smithsonian museum, it deserves multiple visits. The Bernstein exhibition (through September 2018) is not to be missed! The museum provides a thorough overview of the Jewish experience in the U.S. This is a museum for the whole family. They don't sugar-coat the Holocaust but give it a thorough examination through the American experience. A powerful and important part of our history. Philadelphia is fortunate to have this treasure.

  • Came for a quick visit on a free day and enjoyed the Bernstein special exhibit. Saw many other patrons participating in Independence Day events like painting and children's story hour. I first visited when the museum opened, and it looks like it is getting better and better each time. Great museum shop

  • It was worth a visit if your in the area, but not worth the hassle for the sole purpose of visiting this museum. Did like the layout of the museum, although unless you grab a guide book you'll be confused where to start and which direction to follow. The exhibits tell a story of life starting in America to now, the evolution of Judaism and how they have contributed and been affected by American culture. Good overall, but it does make you a little sad.

  • This is everything you'd want in a history museum: vivid, engaging, and richly furnished. And you can hardly beat the location: in between Independence Hall and the National Constitution Center. (Also near the refreshing US Mint!)

  • Very informative. Interesting layout. Many portions brought me to tears. Leonard Bernstein exhibit was exceptional. Everyone should experience this very important museum.
