“My students learned a great deal about a culture they were unfamiliar with, a history that although has some rather dark points, has also proved how incredible the human spirit really is. We are very grateful for the time we were able to spend and wish we could have been there longer.”
JMM offers educational programming that showcases the American Jewish experience. A tour of JMM answer questions about the Jewish experience in the US, but also provides a vehicle for your visitors to discover their own questions. Through docent-led tour, films, interactive displays and exhibit spaces, the Museum provides a forum for discussion about contemporary issues, including immigration, tolerance and civic involvement.
The Museum’s content is directed towards students in grade four and higher and adult groups of all types. JMM has hosted senior centers, churches and synagogues, corporate diversity training programs, book clubs, Red Hat groups, and family reunions. Our tours can be directed toward specific themes like the Holocaust or Immigration or can be focused on presenting a broad sense of the Jewish experience.
JMM exhibits and themes correspond with the Wisconsin Model Academic Standards. The staff of the Jewish Museum Milwaukee will customize programs that fit your students’ needs. Docents are also available to come to your classroom prior to your trip to the Jewish Museum Milwaukee. For more information or to book your visit, please contact Ellie Gettinger.
