The Jewish Museum, New York City Overview

The Jewish Museum of New York City, housed in the historic Warburg house, is known as the world’s oldest continuously running Jewish museum and the largest one in terms of collections outside of Israel.

Located on the museum mile on Manhattan’s upper east side alongside the Met and the Guggenheim, this museum stands out because of its unique architecture. Categorised as an art museum and exhibiting a wide range of contemporary art with Jewish influences, it also houses a truly impressive collection of historic Jewish artifacts that trace almost 4000 years of Judaic history. The exhibits are all ordered chronologically and described in detail, making this museum a joy for those looking to delve into knowing more about Jewish culture. An added upside is that due to a recent grant, the Jewish Museum is free to visit on Saturdays.
