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. We combine art, rare objects, historical photographs, oral histories, videos and hands-on activities in engaging, informative exhibitions. Each exhibit created or hosted by the Museum reveals new perspectives on the Jewish experience in Maryland and beyond.
