A must go place where you can understand the history of the Jewish people and the diaspora. Synagogue models are the best

Do not miss the old synagogues depicted here. They are beautiful to see. We also saw the current Dylan exhibit, as a person of that generation this was interesting and fun to see.

This is an extremely comprehensive journey through the centuries of Jewish life across the globe. Especially moving is their exhibit of the Ethiopian Jews movement to Israel. This is a very worthwhile visit. Leave a minimum of four hours to explore.

Even before he won the Nobel prize, the Dylan exhibit alone was worth the price of admission. Then the Ethiopian immigrant exhibit was an added surprise along with the superbly re-curated permanent collection.

It offers you a chance to learn about Jews from Africa-Middle East and Europe; you are given details of Jewish settlements in ancient times up to the modern age/ Materials are in the forms of words, potos, pictures and videos..You are exposed to a huge reservoir of information.
