The mission of the William Breman Jewish Heritage Museum is to connect people to Jewish history, culture, and arts.
Located in Midtown, the main arts district of Atlanta, the Breman Museum boasts an auditorium and three exhibition galleries, which serve tens of thousands of visitors annually through an array of thought-provoking programs and exhibitions.
Founded in 1985 as the Jewish Community Archives, the Ida Pearle and Joseph Cuba Archives for Southern Jewish History at the Breman Museum is the oldest component of the museum and the largest repository for Jewish history in the Southeast. Consisting of 2,000 manuscript collections spanning millions of documents, over 50,000 images, over 1,000 artifacts, and over 1,300 oral histories, the archives document Jewish life in the Southeast and Holocaust survivors who settled in the region. Most of the items featured our Arts & Culture page come from collections housed in the archives.
The Lillian and A.J. Weinberg Center for Holocaust Education at the Breman Museum offers a broad range of educational programs pertaining to the Holocaust. In addition to providing on-site guided tours of the museum’s Holocaust gallery, the Weinberg Center provides teachers, students, and institutions with access to authentic Holocaust-related educational materials.
The Breman Museum was named one of The Ten Best Museums in Atlanta by USA Today (2015), Institutions of the Year by the Georgia Association of Museums and Galleries (2016), and The Destination in Georgia by TripAdvisor (2016).
