Welcome to the Jewish Museum of Maryland, America’s leading museum of regional Jewish history, culture and community, located in downtown Baltimore. The Museum interprets the Jewish experience in America, with special attention to Jewish life in the state of Maryland. The Museum was founded in 1960 to rescue and restore the historic Lloyd Street Synagogue, and has become a cultural center for the Jewish community and for those interested in Jewish history and traditions.
Today, the Museum campus includes the historic Lloyd Street and B’nai Israel Synagogues and a modern museum building with changing exhibition galleries, program areas, a research library, museum shop, and meeting rooms. Through our collections, exhibitions, sites and programs, we encourage discourse about Jewish life in Maryland and beyond. Come join us for an exciting, engaging museum experience.
