So much to see!! The ivory carvings are amazing up close there is nothing like it!! The jade sculptures too!! Trigger Warning to others just in case: holocaust area is a sensitive place and should only be visited by those who can appreciate learning more about the history. If you are highly sensitive to this I would skip that part.
Nice collection of Chinese carvings - including jade and ivory, vases, many pairs of Foo Dogs (guardian lions), imperial robes. Also a good collection of Judaic carvings, paintings and sculptures. There is a display showing the typical food and symbols of Chanukah and an example of a Passover Seder meal. Very interesting museum.
