Going to the Jewish Museum is a somewhat different experience. I went on a Saturday, which is the free day, and the line wound around the block, but it wasn't only because it was the free day. You have to go through metal detectors once you cross the threshold.
I went to the Jewish Museum when the Houdini exhibit was there, and though it's a small museum, they really packed a lot into it. Not only photos and film clips and newspaper articles, but replicas of the contraptions Houdini got out of. It was very impressive. I'm only sorry that I missed Maira Kalman's ketubah exhibit that was going on at the same time - I'm sure that it was beautiful.

Compared to the MOMA and the Met, the Jewish Museum is a smaller and more intimate museum. This enables the viewer to really soak and take in the featured exhibits and appreciate the art gallery.Recommended for:Art & Design Lovers

What once was a beautiful private home now houses the Jewish Museum, which often presents fascinating exhibitions, displaying quite a wide range of artists and artistic styles. The Jewish Museum shop sells Judaica that's not totally hideous, so it's a good source to know about, should you be in the market for a printed Ketubah or a mezuzah. The shop also sells lots of other things that don't pertain specifically to Judaism and unlike some of the Jewish museums I have visited in other cities, this museum is more about art than anything else. The architecture of the house itself is also quite extraordinary and will fascinate architect lovers and history buffs alike. If you are in the neighborhood, or visiting the nearby Guggenheim, definitely take the time to pop into the Jewish Museum.
