The National Museum of American Jewish History is the only museum in America purely dedicated to telling the more than 350 year history and contributions of the American Jewish people. The Museum is located at 5th & Market Streets along side Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell, the National Constitution Center, and other important landmarks. Now the first floor of this impressive 100,000-square foot, five story building and its Only in America Gallery/Hall of Fame exhibit is open free to the public. This exhibit includes the lives and accomplishments of Leonard Bernstein, Albert Einstein, Barbara Streisand, Estee Lauder, Jonas Salk, Steven Spielberg, Golda Meir, and many others. We expect after viewing the first floor you will be motivated
to visit the rest of the museum including the current featured exhibit called TO BIGOTRY NO SANCTION: George Washington and Religious Freedom, featuring the first president's historic 1790 letter to the Jewish Community of Newport, R.I., affirming the nation's commitment to religious freedom in America running through September 30th.
