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.

  • Lovely space. Went to see Sarah’s closet. Exceptional touching exhibit. The overall impact of building the exhibits space planning gift shop — are all exceptional. it’s just really a beautiful place where visit. Lots of history - very informative.

  • One of the best museums I've ever been to! Great place for both kids and adults... they have exhibits and artifacts and fun things for the kids to do to get involved. The layout was so clear and the quality of history was absolutely worth seeing. I highly recommend this museum to anybody! I could have spent way more time than just an hour here.

  • This is excellent if you have any interest in the revolution, especially if you want to get up-to-date on the subject. So many of us have lost our connection to this. It's a great place for young people to get a sense of how we came to be as a nation.

  • It was really interesting and their exhibits on the top flor changes every so often. This time it was the lady with the white closet. The writing was fun and was sometimes written in marker or was stickers. It was written by here daughter with was cool and had a lot of material to show. The rest of the museum was interesting and had a lot to see. Also, there were a lot of Hands on exhibits which was fabulous that was great for understanding. Overall, it was educational and interesting. I would go there again.

  • Very easy museum to visit. Logical way to move through it, very good but not excessive exhibits, good info provided. Good addition to the area attractions, and worth a visit if you are interested in the Jewish experience in America.
