This small museum has quite an extensive collection. The section on the Nazi era was, in my opinion, the most informative.

I felt the story of the Jewish European was told in a very streamlined manner. It covered all the bases without being too in depth nor did I find it "preachy". It was well done and an important place to visit.

Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial
District is where New York City began as a center of
commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful
setting are complemented by museums, countless
skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District,
home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.
Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view
of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis
