Fodor's Review

In a Gothic-style 1908 mansion, the Jewish Museum draws on a large collection of art and ceremonial objects to explore Jewish identity and culture spanning more than 4,000 years. The two-floor permanent exhibition "Culture and Continuity: The Jewish Journey" displays nearly 800 objects complemented by interactive media. The wide-ranging collection includes a 3rd-century Roman burial plaque, 20th-century sculpture by Elie Nadelman, and contemporary art from artists such as Marc Chagall and Man Ray. Russ & Daughters—an almost century-old Jewish specialty store and an NYC institution downtown—is set to open an outpost in the Jewish Museum in summer 2015.
