In this high-tech fun-filled museum you won't find any "do not touch" or "keep off" signs. Children are encouraged to make full use of the creative, hands-on exhibits such as a Sabbath dinner table big enough to walk on, a working television newsroom where they can file a report on the Chanukah story, a supermarket and kitchen where the rules of kosher come alive though role-play, and a cityscape where faith, charity, and other concepts are presented in "real-life" settings.

I would like to point out, that the museum is not a museum by jews for jews. It is about tolerance and who does not need that? The Jewish Children’s Museum is about teaching tolerance to children of all faith and backgrounds. On of it`s...More

To be clear, this is a museum in the manner of the Lubavitch sect of Judaism. I think that non-Jews would be confused as to what is going on. My son loved this museum as it really brought bible stories to life. They have a...More

It's not that large,, and there's not that much to do compared to a really large municipal children's museum, but it's great for younger kids of the orthodox Jewish crowd.
