The Museum features 9,000 square feet of permanent and changing exhibition space on two floors of our building. Our exhibits were conceived by our staff and board and designed by the world-renown design firms of Gallagher & Associates and Cortina Productions. An eight-minute orientation film in the Mintz Family Theater introduces visitors to the themes and content of the Museum, and invites them to reflect on their own experiences.

Our Special Exhibition Gallery 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.
