    I thought it was a Jewish museum with a focus on the holocaust, but it is interesting to know the history of the Jewish people and its proliferation around the world. Can spend a whole morning there

    One of my top 5 favorite museums in the city. Their exhibitions are top notch, led by knowledgeable guides. This museum is always the highlight of my trip.

    Matthew McCaslin's Being The Light sculpture on the fourth floor is worth checking out. The piece is more than just a work of installation art, it functions as a menorah as well!

    Start on the top floor and work your way down through the permanent exhibits to go in chronological order. Otherwise the museum won't make sense.

    one the best museums in NYC with top, super high quality exhibitions. They often have art exhibitions for famous artists like man ray or eva hesse that fly under the radar. Seek it out, it's worth it.

    Quite an ambitious gallery display, fascinating and compelling even if you aren’t a chosen one, which I am, but you don’t have to be.

    Delve into permanent exhibit, "Culture and Continuity: The Jewish Journey." You can follow the story of the Jewish people through at least 800 art forms, from paintings to hip-hop showcases.

    Free on Saturdays. Amazing Kehinde Wiley exhibit going on right now on their 2nd floor that you should definitely check out!

    Take a close look at the coins and medals showcased on the third floor. They are stunning. I liked the Portrait Medal of Moses Mendelssohn, but wished the reverse side had been displayed.

    There’s menorah mania in the gift shop of this spot, which, considering the many exhibits that feature artists such as Pissarro or Soutine, could easily be called the "I Didn’t Know They Were Jewish!" Read more

    Nice museum. Starts off very history/artifact-oriented then quickly gets artsy.

    Somehow the folks that run this spot haven't a clue of how much Jewish culture this is ABOVE 96th street. That is, after you've went through Fort Know security to get in! At least it's in proximity.

    Pushy guards and overcrowded. Almost claustrophobic displays ( perhaps intentional?) the Chagall exhibit was good, but short.
