How can we enhance our time at the Museum or in Philadelphia?

The National Museum of American Jewish History offers a variety of special exhibitions, engaging public programs, including lectures, film screenings, performances, discussions, and more. Additionally, the Museum works on an ongoing basis with community partners – theaters, historical sites, museums, restaurants, and more – to create exciting opportunities available exclusively to groups.

Your group can also take advantage of various cultural partnerships. Please see below for joint ticket opportunities currently in effect.


We invite your group to add Beyond Swastika and Jim Crow: Jewish Refugee Scholars at Black Colleges, opening January 15, 2013.  This special exhibition tells the unknown story of Jewish Academics who came to America in the 1930's as refugees and found homes, work, and community at historically black colleges in the segregated South.
