Overview
More
In this high-tech fun-filled museum you won't find any "do not touch" or "keep off" signs. Children are encouraged to make full use of the creative, hands-on exhibits such as a Sabbath dinner table big enough to walk on, a working television newsroom where they can file a report on the Chanukah story, a supermarket and kitchen where the rules of kosher come alive though role-play, and a cityscape where faith, charity, and other concepts are presented in "real-life" settings.

My children loved this museum. It was the highlight of their trip to NYC. Such a fun experience. If you're Jewish and in NYC, bring your children here!

This museum is to educate children, Jewish and not about the Jewish culture. But do not think there’s only exhibits for kids. The 30 ft collage by the world famous artist, Michoel Muchnik is worth going to see without anything else. You can look at...More

This was an interesting experience of getting to know and see how the Jewish community keep and restore their culture, starting from children play ground, toys and games, food they eat and their overall behavior.

I would like to point out, that the museum is not a museum by jews for jews. It is about tolerance and who does not need that? The Jewish Children’s Museum is about teaching tolerance to children of all faith and backgrounds. On of it`s...More

To be clear, this is a museum in the manner of the Lubavitch sect of Judaism. I think that non-Jews would be confused as to what is going on. My son loved this museum as it really brought bible stories to life. They have a...More
