Amazing jade (Asian) and silver (Judaica) pieces of art. The artwork is large and grand and there is even an interactive element. Surprising hit!

There are two sides of the museum. The Asian side which has an amazingly large collection of carved jade and ivory and priceless pieces which are beautiful. You won't believe the size of some of the pieces. Just amazing. The other side is the Judaic...More

Happened upon this museum, and so glad I did. Truly amazing collection with broad inventory spanning centuries. Was able to enjoy the museum virtually alone (sad more people were not there). Did not get the recorded headphones, but noticed they are an option.
