National Museum of American Jewish History
This museum starts at the top and at the beginning. Focusing on Jewish immigration stories as early as the seventeenth century, a trip to this museum gives visitors a comprehensive look at Jewish life in America. As you venture down the stairs (or elevator), you get closer and closer to present day life, following their journey through faith, legislation, religious expression and more, ending with a Hall of Fame gallery on the first floor featuring artifacts from well-known Jewish Americans. This month, look out for “1917: How One Year Changed the World,” which looks back on a single year and the great impact it still has, on view through July 16. 101 S. Independence Mall East. 215. 923. 3811, nmajh.org
