The Jewish Museum of Maryland in Baltimore is considered one of the finest Jewish museums in the United States. Founded in 1960 as part of an effort to restore the historic Lloyd Street Synagogue next door, the museum tells the story of Jewish life in America with special attention on Judaism in Maryland.

What to See

The Jewish Museum stands between two historic synagogues - the Lloyd Street Synagogue (1845; third oldest in America; Neoclassical style) and B'nai Israel Synagogue (1876; Moorish Revival style), which can be seen on guided tours from the museum.

The JMM has over 40,000 documents and artifacts in its archives, which are displayed in changing exhibitions. The museum also has a research library, meeting rooms, and a museum shop.
