Mission Statement

The Jewish Museum is dedicated to the enjoyment, understanding, and preservation of the artistic and cultural heritage of the Jewish people through its unparalleled collections, distinguished exhibitions, and related education programs. Using art and artifacts that embody the diversity of the Jewish experience from ancient to present times, throughout the world, the Museum strives to be a source of inspiration and shared human values for people of all religious and cultural backgrounds while serving as a special touchstone of identity for Jewish people. As a vital cultural resource for New York residents and visitors of all ages, the Museum also reaches out to national and international communities as it interprets and preserves art and Jewish culture for current and future generations.


Widely admired for its exhibitions and educational programs that inspire people of all backgrounds, The Jewish Museum is the preeminent U.S. institution exploring the intersection of 4,000 years of art and Jewish culture. The Jewish Museum was established in 1904 when Judge Meyer Sulzberger donated 26 ceremonial art objects to The Jewish Theological Seminary of America as the core of a museum collection. At the heart of New York City's famed Museum Mile, The Jewish Museum today maintains an important collection of 25,000 objects - paintings, sculpture, works on paper, photographs, archaeological artifacts, ceremonial objects, and broadcast media - and presents exhibitions that receive international critical and popular acclaim.

Would you recommend The Jewish Museum?

by Eirini C. from New York, NY (2013-04-23 06:46:36.0)
I've been volunteering to the Jewish Museum the past 4 months and I am very happy about it. The hiring procedure was very simple and the working environment is very pleasant and highly organized. I absolutely recommend it to people who like visiting museums, since they give a free pass for almost all the museums in NY.
