Expansion of National Museum of American Jewish History to open
POSTED 16 Nov 2010 . BY Luke Tuchscherer
The US$150m (£93m) expansion of the National Museum of American Jewish History in Philadelphia, US, is to open on Friday 26 November.

The five-storey, 100,000sq ft museum will boast three floors of core exhibition space, which will explore more than 350 years of American Jewish history, while another floor will be dedicated to changing exhibits.

The concourse will be entirely devoted to education: with classrooms, a theatre and a resource centre. The museum will also feature a café and a gift shop.

New York-based Ennead Architects (formerly Polshek Partnership Architects) designed the museum.

A special gala opening took place on Saturday (13 November), with entertainment from singer Bette Midler and comedian Jerry Seinfeld.

Michael Rosenzweig, the museum's president and CEO, said: "This landmark event is a signal achievement for the American Jewish community and all Americans.

"With the help of generous supporters across the entire country, we have brought to life one of the nation's finest and most important museums, a place for all Americans to explore, offering a highly engaging and thought-provoking look at one ethnic group's experience with freedom."
