Where are we going today?

Rising five stories above Independence Mall, in the heart of historic Philadelphia, the National Museum of American Jewish History will join Independence Hall, the National Constitution Center, the Liberty Bell and other landmarks at the hallowed site of America's birth. There could not be a more fitting place for a museum that will explore the promise and challenges of liberty through the lens of the American Jewish experience.

    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.
