Visiting the Jewish Museum in the Upper East Side
The Upper East Side condos at 40 East End come with many exclusive benefits, including convenient access to the inspirational museums of Museum Mile, especially the Jewish Museum.
Since 1947, the Jewish Museum has stood as a proud representation of Jewish ancestry with a grandness and extensive set of exhibits that can’t be found elsewhere.
Located near our luxury Manhattan condos on the Upper East Side, this museum is the quintessential destination for anyone seeking to learn more about Jewish history and see a wide variety of exclusive exhibits and artifacts.
Spanning four millennia, a vast multitude of artistic disciplines, and authenticated stories from generation-defining leaders, the museum is arguably the most definitive collection of Jewish history in the world.
What Can You Find in the Museum?
The Jewish Museum collects a wide assortment of artifacts and other items. The bulk of the collection features fine art from Jewish masters dating back centuries. Broadcasted media, ceremonial objects, informative videos, photographs, manuscripts, kitchenware, books, and more capture a long history of the Jewish people.
The museum doesn’t hold back in how far back it will go to cover Jewish art culture. It captures historic documents dating back to the earliest recorded histories of Judaism, and up to the present-day status of Jewish culture in New York City. The vast extent of the collection makes it an ideal stop for those living in Upper East Side condos as well as travelers from other boroughs.
Some highlights include work by Andy Warhol and Amedeo Modigliani. You can find special and hand-selected collections of Jewish masters discovering, refining, and defining their oeuvre.
The curators make sure to represent Jewish culture from various countries and time periods. For example, the Archaeology Zone looks at the world over 5,000 years ago, and how the earliest documentation helped shape playgrounds, palaces, and cities of history. The Chagall, Lissitzky, Malevich exhibit takes a focused look at Russian avant-garde masters in the early 20th century. The specificity of the exhibit is one of the museum’s defining traits.
The Scenes from the Collection exhibit is the current main showcase, and it is expected to continue for years to come. The entire third floor encompasses about 600 works, from classic antiquities to modern works of art. It represents the parallels between Judaism 4,000 years ago and how it is represented today. Visitors can reshape their own perspective and receive a broad look at the spirituality, both changed and unchanged, across the millennia.
Some rooms will change annually, but the core of the floor will remain the same celebration of Jewish history and art.
The official website for the museum states a collection spanning 4,000 years and over 30,000 items. About 4,000 of these items can be reviewed on the museum website.
The museum is located at 1109 5th Ave & E 92nd St, just a few minutes from our luxury Manhattan condos. The cost is $18 for adults and $12 for seniors. Children 18 and under are free.
No place in the city, and perhaps the world, more definitely spans the entire spectrum of the cultural influence of the Jewish people with such a careful eye. Visit the Jewish Museum for one of the most vibrant and awe-inspiring concentrations of art collections that can be found near 40 East End’s Upper East Side condos.
