The Jewish Museum of Maryland is one of the country’s leading centers for exhibits on Jewish history and culture.

The Museum has 3 exhibition galleries – two in the Main Museum building, and a new one in the lower level of the Lloyd Street Synagogue, that host changing exhibits of local and national interest.
