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.

Our staff, together Gallagher and a group of thirty historians, writers, and rabbis, have created immersive, interactive exhibits designed to educate, engage, and entertain.

Our Museum includes a Special Exhibition Gallery that features both exhibitions created by the MSJE as well as traveling exhibitions on loan from other institutions. These exhibitions highlight topics and themes that explore diverse experiences within Southern Jewish life. The temporary exhibitions also provides new opportunities for learning and discovery for both returning and first-time visitors.
