Jewish Museum information
This New York City gem is tucked into a French-Gothic mansion from 1908, housing 30,000 items of Judaica, as well as sculpture, painting and decorative arts. It hosts excellent temporary exhibits, featuring retrospectives on influential figures such as Art Spiegelman, as well as world-class shows on the likes of Marc Chagall, Édouard Vuillard and Man Ray among other past luminaries.
There are frequent lectures and events, as well as an array of activities and concerts for children. Every January, the museum collaborates with the Film Society of Lincoln Center to present the New York Jewish Film Festival.
