“Very Comprehensive Jewish History Exhibits and great Cafe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 January 2012

The food at the Cafe is excellent and affordable. The permanent Jewish history exhibits are very comprehensive and they even have part of an ancient Synagog floor and wall outside along with a very detailed explanation. There was also a temporary exhibit called "Women hold up Half the Sky" that was very informative. Parking is free and admission is on par for museums in Los Angeles.

“Really like this Center (more like a museum)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 January 2012

What a cultural exhibit that includes many special exhibits, film, gallery and the wonderful Noah's Ark play area (which is a must see with younger children). Tour the exhibits of Jewish heritage, which are beautifully presented. Sometimes they are included in the Bank of America show your card free Sundays. Zeidler's Cafe serves delicious food and we always try to eat there for lunch. Great Center, just bad traffic area if going doing rush hours.
