The National Museum of American Jewish History
The National Museum of American Jewish History is constructing a new 100,000-square-foot, five-story building on Independence Mall that will stand directly across from the Liberty Bell, two blocks south of the National Constitution Center, and one block north of the birthplace of American liberty, Independence Hall.
The new Museum, which will serve as a cornerstone of the modern-day American Jewish community, is dedicated to telling the still unfolding story of Jews in America - who embraced freedom with its choices and challenges as they shaped, and were shaped by, our nation. The Museum will welcome all people, inviting them to discover what they have in common with the Jewish experience in America, and to explore the features that make this history distinctive.
