Co-Chairmen's Message


Board of Trustees


We have built more than a Museum on Independence Mall. We are building a legacy for our children and grandchildren, so that they will know who they are and where they came from. It is important for Americans, Jewish and otherwise, to have a better appreciation of this great country’s rich and diverse history.

The National Museum of American Jewish History celebrates what an immigrant group can accomplish when given the opportunity to live in freedom.

Our Museum is for future generations. It’s for you. It’s for all Americans and for all people who appreciate freedom and liberty.  We hope you and your family will visit our Museum.
