Attraction details
Owner description: The Jewish Museum of Florida-FIU is the only Museum dedicated to telling the story of 250 years of Florida Jewish heritage, arts and culture. The museum is housed in two adjacent lovingly restored historic buildings, at 301 Washington Avenue on South Beach, that were once synagogues for Miami Beach's first Jewish congregation. The museum's focal point is its core exhibit, "MOSAIC: Jewish Life in Florida, 1763 to Present" and its temporary history and art exhibits that change periodically. A Collections and Research Center, several films, Timeline Wall of Jewish history, museum Store filled with unique items and Bessie's Bistro complete the experience for visitors of all ages and backgrounds. The museum is accredited by the American Alliance of Museums.

“Jewish Food Walking Tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014

The museum itself is very interesting. The synagogue is well restored and the exhibits were well done. We had the opportunity to go on a Jewish Food Walking Tour. Our guide was knowledgeable and the tour was terrific. A great way to learn about the Jewish history of South Beach and taste some delicious food along the way.

. What a joy to visit this attraction. Could have stayed there longer. Very knowledgable docent; history and memorabilia from earliest days of Florida relating to Jewish settlers to the 50s to now.
Loads of exhibits. Parking in lot (small) and on-street parking.

“Back early in the 20th Century when you could get good lox and bagels”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2014

It's a very small museum housed in a former Synagoge but they give you an escorted tour and answer any questions you might have.
Meyer Lansky donated a window, but they still wouldn't let him into Israel.
