As an educational institution, the Museum of Jewish Heritage - A Living Memorial to the Holocaust is committed to serving students and instructors from a broad spectrum of schools.

The Museum offers guided class visits led by trained Gallery Educators, pre- and post-visit curriculum materials, classroom speakers, and educator training workshops - all designed to integrate the Museum visit into the process of classroom learning.

About the Museum

The Museum is New York's primary institution of public education about modern Jewish history and the Holocaust. The Museum tells the moving story of 20th century Jewish life from the perspective of those who lived it. Weaving together personal experiences and world events, it paints an evocative portrait of a people and an indomitable spirit. Created as a living memorial to the victims of the Holocaust, the Museum honors those who died by celebrating their lives and legacy. It conveys a message of memory and hope that is of universal significance.
