The staff were very friendly, and the exhibits- special and regular- were interesting and emotional. I couldn't believe I lived in Milwaukee so long without visiting before. I will definitely be recommending it to others.

We went to see the exhibit "Stitching History From The Holocaust," after reading about it in the New York Times. The exhibit was great and the permanent collection was also very interesting, especially since we came up from Chicago and were not familiar with the history of Jewish Milwaukee. Highly recommended way to spend an hour or two (and easily combined with a visit to the Milwaukee Art Museum, as it is just a mile or two away).

Q&A with Ellie Gettinger, Education Director

What is the one feature of your business that you're most proud of?

Jewish Museum Milwaukee has beautiful engaging displays, including the only Marc Chagall tapestry in Milwaukee. This is an epic piece?it's 14'x19') and provides perspective on Jewish history. In addition, our changing exhibits enliven the understanding of the Jewish experience. Every three months, JMM has a totally new display to explore.

Have you ever been a patron of your own business? If so, what was the most enjoyable part?

I love touring the Museum. There are so many interesting and unique stories that show the development of the city of Milwaukee. There is a lot of information, but the museum's size makes it easy to get through in an hour or two.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

Right now our changing exhibit is Stitching History from the Holocaust (through February 28)? the museum's largest exhibit to date. The exhibit details the experience of Paul and Hedy Strnad, a woman who sent eight designs to Milwaukee in the hopes of immigrating.
