The Museum includes 9,000 square feet of permanent and changing exhibit space on two floors of our building. Our exhibits are being designed by the world-renown design firm of Gallagher & Associates, who created the exhibits at the National WWII Museum, the National Archives, the National Museum of American Jewish History, the Kentucky Derby Museum, and many others around the world.

Together with our staff and a Historical Advisory Committee of twenty historians, writers, and rabbis, Gallagher is creating immersive, interactive exhibits that will educate, engage, and entertain.

Our Museum will include a special gallery featuring exhibitions created by the MSJE as well as traveling exhibitions on loan from other institutions. These exhibitions will highlight topics and themes in support of the Museum’s efforts to preserve and explore diverse experiences within Southern Jewish life. The temporary exhibitions will also provide new opportunities for learning and discovery for both returning and first-time visitors.
