JMM Members – Let us know you’re coming!




This year JMM is hosting two exhibits from the National Archives and Records Administration – Discovery and Recovery: Preserving Iraqi Jewish Heritage (open now) and Amending America: The Bill of Rights (open next April 9).  The National Archives and its most famous document, the official Declaration of Independence, achieved stardom in the 2004 adventure classic National Treasure. Though he doesn’t look a bit like Diane Kruger, the actual director of the National Archives museum at that time was our own Marvin Pinkert.  So this December 25th we’ll not only show the movie, but also get the inside scoop on the real story behind both the treasure and the film.


1:00 “Lemon Juice, Hair Dryers and other Archival Nightmares”– The Making of National Treasure – talk by Marvin Pinkert


1:45 National Treasure – movie screening
