The Jewish Museum Milwaukee is dedicated to preserving and presenting the history of the Jewish people in southeastern Wisconsin and celebrating the continuum of Jewish heritage and culture. The history of American Jews is rooted in thousands of years of searching for freedom and equality. We are committed to sharing this story and the life lessons it brings. JMM builds bridges to others with difficult histories and explores relevant contemporary topics though the lens of history and art.
Jewish Museum Milwaukee explores the breadth of Jewish life and culture, both within the state of Wisconsin and beyond. Major sections in the permanent exhibit include immigration, belief and community, earning a living, intolerance and the Holocaust, Israel, and tikkun olam or "repairing the world." 3 special exhibits and over 40 programs per year allow in-depth exploration of important and contemporary issues.
