The National Museum of American Jewish History, located on historic Independence Mall in Philadelphia, brings to life the 350-year history of Jews in America. Tracing the stories of how Jewish immigrants became Jewish Americans, the Museum invites visitors of all backgrounds to share their own stories and reflect on how their histories and identities shape and are shaped by the American experience. An open door for all, NMAJH honors the past and contributes to a better future by sharing the power of imagination and ideas, culture and community, leadership and service, in ways that turn inspiration into action.
Featuring more than 1,200 artifacts, as well as original films and 13 state-of-the-art interactive displays, the exhibition showcases how an immigrant population flourished under freedom and highlights the diverse backgrounds and experiences of Jews in this country.
The Museum interprets how Jews shape and are shaped by America, explores the blessings and challenges of freedom, and provides opportunities for visitors to contribute their own stories.
With its stunning interior and spectacular, one-of-a-kind views of Independence Mall, and with more than 20,000 square feet of event space on multiple levels, the new five-story Museum is the perfect venue for special events and meetings.
No visit to the Museum would be complete without a stop at the Museum's dairy and vegetarian café, Pomegranates Café. Overlooking Market Street with seating for 35, Pomegranates Café offers visitors light fare, specialty coffees and dairy snacks and beverages.
The Museum Store offers an upscale collection of traditional and contemporary Judaica, wedding gifts and ketubot (Jewish marriage contracts), books, and NMAJH logo items. Shop in person or browse items online at judaicashop.net.
