The Museum of the Southern Jewish Experience offers students a wonderful opportunity to expand their understanding of New Orleans, Louisiana, the South, and the United States. By seeing history through the eyes of others, or the eyes of their ancestors, students will learn a unique chapter in American history, gain an appreciation for diversity, and be challenged to confront stereotypes about themselves and others.
Field trips offer an engaging tour of the museum’s exhibits, as well as a variety of on-site classroom activities, from oral history tutorials to historical debates to arts & crafts fun. Pre and post-visit materials are provided.
If you are a teacher, we’d love to offer you a free visit to the Museum. Fill out the field trip form to be connected with our team.
Our Museum Store will feature a selection of unique items created by Southern Jewish artists and craftspeople, as well as Southern and Jewish-inspired souvenirs, books, t-shirts, and other tchotchkes.
