A visit to the National Museum of American Jewish History is a must when in Philly. My husband and I spent 3 hours touring the exhibits, taking a docent led tour, and talking to docents about the museum's
history. This is an attraction that appeals to people of all religions and ages as it is an historical account of one religious minority's contributions to this great country. The building is a modern architectural masterpiece and a perfect venue for portraying our country's history from the beginnings to present time. The many contributions of Jewish citizens from colonial times to the present is amazing and illustrates how the American Dream can be achieved in this wonderful land of ours. Do not miss the Museum Shop which has an excellent stock of merchandise for everyone. The museum is right on the mall and easily accessible by bus if you are not within walking distance. As with all the wonderful historic sights in Philly, allow enough time to enjoy-you won't be disappointed.
