Visiting the Jewish Museum of Maryland
Welcome to the Jewish Museum of Maryland, America’s leading museum of regional Jewish history, culture and community. The Museum interprets the Jewish experience in America, with special attention to Jewish life in the state of Maryland. The Museum was founded in 1960 to rescue and restore the historic Lloyd Street Synagogue, and has become a cultural center for the Jewish community and for those interested in Jewish history and traditions.
Today, the Museum campus includes the historic Lloyd Street and B’nai Israel Synagogues and a modern museum building with changing exhibition galleries, program areas, a research library, museum shop, and meeting rooms. Through our collections, exhibitions, sites and programs, we encourage discourse about Jewish life in Maryland and beyond. Come join us for an exciting, engaging museum experience.

Every effort is made to accommodate visitors with special needs. Because of the historic period and age of our two historic synagogues, some areas are not accessible to visitors with physical disabilities. However, we are able to show a 20 minute film version of the synagogue tour.
Auxiliary aids include:
• Braille handouts and maps
• Open captioning on the synagogue film
• Easily accessible restrooms
• A wheelchair is available upon request.
