Museum of Jewish Heritage reviews
Highly moving and educational. Very well done. The museum is in Battery Park, so it is easy to tie a visit to a Statue of Liberty cruise. more »
Had a wonderful tour guide who walked us through. It's big and full of information. So sad but so needed. I highly highly recommend a trio there at least once. I will definitely be going back. more »
Take your time with this museum. You will not regret it. Its on the larger side so I recommend blocking out some time for this museum. I loved hearing peoples accounts of what happened and how beautiful and well thought out the exhibits are. Highly recommend if you are visiting NYC!
Really well done. I especially enjoyed watching the interviews of survivors. Very interesting stories. You see how emotional it is for them to tell their story. I also liked the many artifacts there were. Clothes, pictures, tools and more. Definitely a good place to visit.
