I walked by the museum while exploring Battery Park. It was a thorough comprehensive museum that told a story of many generations. The artifact collection was incredible.

A unique set of exhibits on 3 floors with rare artifacts. The building is surrounded by a lovely park where you can see Lady Liberty in the distance. Worth a visit.

We toured the museum before seeing the Yiddish version of Fiddler On The Roof (which was fantastic!!). It’s a small museum and easy to navigate. We spent about 1 1/2 hours which was sufficient to cover around 75% of the exhibits. Our major criticism was...More
