The Jewish Museum was established in 1904 when Judge Mayer Sulzberger gave 26 ceremonial objects to the Jewish Theological Seiminary as the core of a museum collection. Since then, the museum's offerings have grown to offer more than 30,000 works of art, artifacts and media installations.

The museums's location in the Warburg Mansion offers plenty of space for amazing things to see: its upcoming Fall 2017 exhibition, Scenes from the Collection, will feature over 650 works from antiquities to contemporary art. Hungry? Check out Russ & Daughters' 60-seat restaurant on the museum's lower level.
