The Jewish Museum is an art museum committed to illuminating the complexity and vibrancy of Jewish culture for a global audience. Through distinctive exhibitions and programs that present the work of diverse artists and thinkers, we share ideas, provoke dialogue, and promote understanding.
Founded in 1904 with just 26 donated objects, the Museum has grown a thousand-fold. Its collection now comprises 27,000 items, ranging from archaeological artifacts to works by today's cutting-edge contemporary artists. Whether hundreds of years old or newly created, each object or work of art embodies an aspect of a truly universal story. Today, The Jewish Museum organizes a diverse schedule of internationally acclaimed and award-winning temporary exhibitions.
Whether you visit our home in the elegant Warburg mansion on New York City's Museum Mile, or enjoy our collection and exhibitions online, you will find yourself on a fascinating journey through time and across continents.
