Located in Lower Manhattan’s Battery Park City, the Museum of Jewish Heritage is a living memorial to those who lost their lives in the Holocaust. See a variety of permanent and temporary exhibits that cover a variety of topics, from Auschwitz to the boats the Danes used to save their country’s Jewish citizens.
The Museum of Jewish Heritage opened in 1997 with a mission to “educate people of all ages and backgrounds about the broad tapestry of Jewish life in the 20th and 21st centuries—before, during, and after the Holocaust.” The museum uses objects, photographs, and audio testimonials to tell the story of Jewish people and culture in the US and beyond. Visit the exhibits, the memorial garden, and the Reflection Passage (designed to encourage contemplation), and attend special talks and performances.
