If you have a couple of hours in Tucson, you can't miss this opportunity. I took my 8th graders on a field trip to this beautifully done learning center. The docents were amazing! The exhibits were exceptional! Please don't miss out on this opportunity.

To learn about the history of the Jewish people in Tucson, you must pay a visit to the now Jewish History Museum. They have restored the stained glass windows, have displays of Jewish culture, civic participation,and a newly built Holocaust museum next door. ,

We enjoyed spending some quality time and learning about the early settlers and people responsible for this building. Not a history buff but loved learning about the life and times of the Jewish people of the time.
