  • Sunday School Classes
  • Business Groups
  • Reunion Groups
  • Book Clubs, etc.


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. All organized groups of youth are required to fill out this field trip form prior to their visit and confirm details with our staff.

If you are a teacher, we’d love to offer you a free visit to the Museum. Fill out the Teacher Info/Complimentary Ticket Form to be connected with our team.
