Museum of Jewish Heritage Tours

Museum of Jewish Heritage
Located in Lower Manhattan’s Battery Park City, the Museum of Jewish Heritage is a living memorial to those who lost their lives in the Holocaust. See a variety of permanent and temporary exhibits that cover a variety of topics, from Auschwitz to the boats the Danes used to save their country’s Jewish citizens.

The Basics
The Museum of Jewish Heritage opened in 1997 with a mission to “educate people of all ages and backgrounds about the broad tapestry of Jewish life in the 20th and 21st centuries—before, during, and after the Holocaust.” The museum uses objects, photographs, and audio testimonials to tell the story of Jewish people and culture in the US and beyond. Visit the exhibits, the memorial garden, and the Reflection Passage (designed to encourage contemplation), and attend special talks and performances. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Entry to the museum includes use of an audio guide. 
  • Pre-book tickets online to save time.
  • The museum is wheelchair accessible.

How to Get There
The Museum of Jewish Heritage is located at 36 Battery Place in lower Manhattan. To reach the museum by subway, take the 4 or 5 train to Bowling Green or the 2 or 3 train to Wall St. 

When to Get There
The museum is open Sunday–Thursday from morning until evening and Friday from morning through early afternoon. The museum is closed on Saturdays and major Jewish and public holidays. Check the schedule for special events and exhibits. 

Climb to the Top of the Statue of Liberty
After visiting the Museum of Jewish Heritage, head across the water to the Statue of Liberty. Standing proud on an island in New York Harbor since 1886, the Statue of Liberty is perhaps New York’s most famous landmark. Visit to see Lady Liberty up close and to climb the 377 steps inside the hollow copper statue and enjoy the view from her crown.
