My visit was wonderful! Huge thanks to Robyn for being so welcoming, and then to Eileen for sharing her extensive knowledge of the Jewish artifacts displayed and her faith. We were at the Museum for about three hours and could have spent more time (they had to remind us they were closing at 5!). Beyond the fascinating artifacts on permanent... More

The museum is home to a collection of items detailing the jewish heritage of the Cleveland area beginning with immigration up to present day. It is a really good museum with interesting facts on Cleveland's history. The real highlight though is their temporary exhibitions. These change every 6 months or so, but they always are very well done and focus... More

Not just for people of the Jewish faith but for those interested in the history of east side Cleveland. The museum also does compelling exhibits that have included the Dead Sea Scrolls and quilts from the Holocast.

The museum is wonderful! Great permanent displays. It is obvious that Cleveland has had a rich Jewish history. The Jews who came at the turn of the century helped build the city and its culture.

There are many places to see foreign or independent films in Cleveland, but don't forget that many of the museums in the area show films as well. We saw "Freedom Summer" (part of the "American Experience" series) at the Maltz Museum. An intimate viewing space, the big screen and good sound system provide a fitting way to view such important...

This museum not only can give you an insight on Judaism, but has special exhibits. Also, a wonderful exhibit on the holocaut.

A great way to spend a weekend afternoon. There are a lot of different exhibits. I thought it would be bigger on the inside but interesting overall.

This museum is quite different from the other Jewish museums I have seen. It includes the obligatory depictions of the holocaust and of Jewish life through the millennia but it focuses on the Jewish experience in America with a particular emphasis on the Jews of Cleveland. Accordingly, it featured a lot of information with which I was not familiar. There... More

I had to write a paper for school about ethnic diversity and found this museum about 30 minutes away from where I live to help me research the Jewish lifestyle and faith. I learned so much during my visit that my paper was very enjoyable to write and I have so much more understanding of the Jewish Heritage in my... More
