The Jewish Museum Milwaukee, a program of the Milwaukee Jewish Federation, is dedicated to preserving and presenting the history of the Jewish people in southeastern Wisconsin and celebrating the continuum of Jewish heritage and culture.
A resource for both education and entertainment, the museum features a permanent exhibit detailing the history of Jews in Milwaukee, as well as changing exhibits such as Andy Warhol: Ten Portraits of Jews of the 20th Century, Jews Who Rock and Stitching History From the Holocaust.
The museum is a fascinating field trip for students of all ages. Through our docent-led tour, films, interactive displays and exhibit spaces, the Museum provides a forum for discussion about contemporary issues, including immigration, tolerance and civic involvement. To book a Museum experience, email Education Director Ellie Gettinger at 414-390-5742.
Historical records are available for researchers including archives and collections, genealogical records, vital statistics and oral histories.
