The Contemporary Jewish Museum shows exhibitions and programs that deepen contemporary perspectives of Jewish history, culture, art and ideology.
The museum has temporary exhibitions that are not usually very good, so it is advisable to check the website before going to know if the exhibition’s subject is of interest to you.
The outside of the building grabs your attention by its unusual shape. It was designed by the famous architect Daniel Libeskind, who was also in charge of the urban renewal of the World Trade Center in New York.
There may be some people who especially like this type of unusual art but, for the rest of us mortals, the Jewish Museum of Contemporary Art is not an interesting visit.
