The Jewish Children's Museum is a fascinating place to visit with the family, no matter what your history or culture. This New York museum is dedicated to teaching all about the Jewish culture, including the holidays, biblical history, and contemporary Jewish life.
For those Jewish families, it's a great way for kids to learn all about their culture, and for others it's a fascinating insight into an incredible group of people.
The Jewish Children's Museum is filled with hands-on exhibits where kids can learn through play. They can explore Jewish history, as well as heritage. In fact, it's a celebration of the Jewish culture!
Kids can learn all about the 6 Days of Creation as they follow the biblical story with a 3D multi-media display, or they can learn all about the holidays as they stroll through a replica os an old-fashioned village. Kids will really feel like they have been transported to another time as they weave in and out of the homes and storefronts, and peer through the windows. They can shop, or press olive oil, or even retell the Purim story using puppets!
The Jewish diet is ready to be explored at the Kosher supermarkets, and kids will be able to stock up on Kosher products and even use the working scales! It's a great way for kids to understand why some of their friends might eat a certain way, and they can develop a respect for that.
Don't forget to head to the Kosher Kitchen afterwards to get the food on the table!
The visit for the Jewish Children's Museum won't be complete without a visit to the World of Good exhibit, where the city skyline as a backdrop offers a place for kids to explore the fundamental good deeds which are universal to all.
Culture, history and learning awaits!
