Allow time to see all four floors! I thought it was a small museum that would take an hour, it definitely took close to four! What an incredible collection. Also, look up on the 2nd floor. The ceiling is amazing.

The exhibit that is going on now is the best in New York. You MUST see Vuillard. Jewish Museum is wonderful. I suggest it highly. Nice people, high security! (Ha!) Great on a Sunday, you can park easily anywhere, and it wasn't so crowded, so you could see the paintings easily. I went at 2:00 pm, a good time, lots of people have left by then. See this exhibit before it's over!

From Our Editors

From a stone mosaic that lined the floors of a 5th-century synagogue to the final rhyme spit out by a Jewish hip-hop artist, the span of the Jewish Museum's collections is as diverse as it is expansive. What began in 1904 with 26 artifacts has blossomed into a collection of 27,000 paintings, sculptures, and multimedia exhibits that together present a collage of art and Jewish culture from across centuries and continents.

The centerpiece of the Museum is Culture and Continuity: The Jewish Journey, a permanent exhibition teeming with artifacts, videos, and art that collectively celebrate Jewish identity and the culture's ability to persevere through sometimes tragic circumstances. Artists—from 20th century French master Édouard Vuillard to contemporary American painter Kehinde Wiley—enliven the galleries in rotating exhibitions.

Interactive exhibits such as the Archaeology Zone bring kids within earshot of ancient times as they don ancient costumes and weigh, magnify, and analyze vessels just like anthropologists or careful ancient housewares shoppers. Family activities include holiday-themed art classes and workshops, and The Wind Up series invites adults into the Museum for an after-hours menagerie of cutting-edge music, film, and theatre. After a day of soaking up history, attendees can nosh at Lox at Café Weissman, a certified-kosher café whose stained glass windows shed light on the edible portion of the Jewish journey.
