National Museum Of American Jewish History To Move

Breaking News

PHILADELPHIA The National Museum of American Jewish History is planning to build a new facility that could raise its profile and accommodate at least four times more visitors.

The museum, which is in the midst of a 100 (M) million dollar fundraising campaign, plans to acquire and raze a building on a prime corner of Independence Mall. That’s half a block from the museum’s current downtown site.

With a more prominent location within a block of the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, the new facility could attract 250 thousand people in its first year. The museum currently hosts 50 thousand to 65 thousand visitors a year.
