An extremely impressive and moving experience. Could have stayed for many many hours - needs more than one visit to do it justice. Exhibition of Synagogues and prayer was exceptional. Bob Dylan exhibition less impressive - rather "bitty"

This museum needs an updating. I was looking forward to visiting and my family and I were disappointed. The exhibits are old and poorly lit. The section for young children was completely booked so my young grand daughter could not enjoy it. Even the Aroma restaurant there was smelly and dirty.

Liked the layout of the museum. Several places to sit while watching recorded interviews. I thought more countries would be represented. Highlight for me was the Bob Dylan exhibit

Interesting and informative. We used head sets with explanations in english which was really helpful. The highlight was definitely the Bob Dylan exhibition so well displayed with a lot of interesting information

This museum is top notch, a perfect combo of historical items with new age options. There is a room filled with shuls of the world and how Judaism is practiced around the globe. Computer databases are available for family trees.l and various new exhibitions keep things interesting. Worth the visit.

I was beyond excited to get a chance to see this museum again. I didn't know this at the time, but the last time I was there it had just opened. 1978. Magical.

Everything was well presented with good taste. But, I had expected to see more extensive coverage of the Jewish Communities around the world.

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.
