Without museums, Knowledge would roam free, getting into snowball fights with Logic and challenging Reason to footraces. Keep Knowledge where it belongs with today’s Groupon: for $6, you get one adult-general admission ticket to the Museum of Jewish Heritage (up to a $12 value). Children under 12 are always admitted for free.
The Museum of Jewish Heritage is dedicated to honoring the memory of the men, women, and children lost during the Holocaust by celebrating their lives and legacies and teaching younger generations to recognize and fight injustice and oppression. The Core Exhibition unfolds over three floors and their respective themes: Jewish Life a Century Ago, The War Against the Jews, and Jewish Renewal, where first-person histories, photographs, documentary films, and a rotating collection of artifacts present the story of the Holocaust through the perspectives of those who experienced it. In addition to the permanent collection, the museum features powerful elements such as the Voices of Liberty soundscape of immigrant testimonies, and Andy Goldsworthy’s Garden of Stones, an outdoor garden open to the public, allowing all visitors to experience its contemplative space.
Among other exhibitions continuously enriching the museum with new stories and objects, Fire in My Heart: The Story of Hannah Senesh is on view through August 7. The first of its kind dedicated to her story, the exhibit features Hannah's diary and poetry and tells her story of volunteering for a mission to rescue downed Allied pilots and Jews from Nazi-occupied Hungary.
In addition to admission, Groupon users will also receive a 15% discount at the museum's shop, a 10% discount at the café, and $20 toward an individual membership or Young Friends (for ages 21-40) individual membership. Discounts and membership credits must be redeemed during your museum visit.
The Museum of Jewish Heritage offers its own deals at certain times of the week that may be better values than this deal; plan ahead to make sure you're redeeming your Groupon at the most opportune time.
The Museum of Jewish Heritage
The Museum of Jewish Heritage was founded around a lofty goal: to encapsulate Jewish life and culture across the 20th and 21st centuries. A stroll through the exhibit reveals photographs, personal objects of daily life, and audio-video recordings including testimonials from Holocaust survivors.
Items rotate in and out of this core exhibit, while films, discussion panels, and other rotating exhibits paint an even wider picture of Jewish life before, during, and after the Holocaust.
