This museum was state of the art--great interactive displays to keep kids engaged, lots for baby boomers to reminisce about and a great slice of history for everyone who's been part of the Diaspora. I could have spent another day there. Also, the architecture is extraordinary and across the street from the Liberty Bell!

We drove down form Long Island and were not disappointed. The exhibits are laid out well and very informative, including the many videos running. You need a minimum of two hours. We learned a lot about Jewish experience in America. And we also were delighted to see our town's elementary mentioned along with Levittown and my sleep away camp in the 1960's area. The area surrounding the museum is full of Philly history. Take their suggestion about the parking lot that was only $ 8, around the corner form the museum.

The museum has a great spirit and a first rate gift shop. The cafe is also well price-all of which
are essential to a positive experience. They also have some clever ideas re Jewish food and
customs which are always of interest and some great 50's furniture which turned out to be ideal
for a snooze. In this particular Museum t he whole is greater than the sum of it parts.
