Museum of Jewish Heritage
36 Battery Place
Explore modern Jewish history, life, and culture in the Museum’s unique Core Exhibition and award-winning special exhibitions, where you can learn about the broad tapestry of Jewish life in the 20th and 21st centuries–before, during, and after the Holocaust. The Museum differs from other institutions of memory by telling the story of the Holocaust through first-person histories and personal objects.
Other features of the museum include Voices of Liberty, a soundscape of inspiring stories of immigration in a gallery with a spectacular view of the Statue of Liberty. Andy Goldsworthy’s Garden of Stones provides an outdoor contemplative space, and is Goldsworthy’s only permanent installation in New York City. Acclaimed programs—including films, talks, plays, concerts, and family activities—highlight the richness of Jewish culture and ideas.
