Historical Exhibitions

There are Jews in Maine?

We get this question all the time by visitors who never expected to find a Jewish Museum in Maine. While small, the Maine Jewish community is vibrant, with a rich, diverse, and colorful history spanning hundreds of years.

Our interactive exhibits and permanent collections pay tribute to generations of people from every corner of the state, tracing their immigrant journeys, their challenges, their triumphs, and their singular contributions to society.

For further information, we encourage you to browse through the Maine Jewish History Project and Documenting Maine Jewry websites.
