Museum of Jewish Heritage

Visit the Museum of the Jewish Heritage, a living memorial to the Holocaust as New York’s contribution to the world’s responsibility to never forget. The museum is devoted to educating visitors of all backgrounds of Jewish life before, during and after the Holocaust. Along with its exhibits, the museum holds a rich collection of survivor testimonies, which can be recorded by surviving visitors, illuminating Jewish history and experience. The museum strives to invoke memory to teach the dangers of bigotry and intolerance and challenge visitors to allow the painful lessons of the past guide them to a better future.

The museum has a meaningful location at the southernmost tip of Manhattan, across from the Statue of Liberty where millions entered America seeking refuge. Its architecture also inspires its mission, with the core building’s six-sided shape and six-tiered, 85-foot roof as reminders of the six million Jews who perished in the Holocaust.

The museum features more than 800 artifacts and 2,000 photographs that demonstrate Jewish history and personal experience. The exhibits are featured chronologically: Jewish Life a Century Ago, War Against the Jews, and Jewish Renewal; striving to prove that Jewish heritage will not be defined by horror. The museum’s personalized history exhibition remind visitors of the individual lives that were brutally changed forever and to connect with a range of human experiences.
