The $72-million National Museum of American Jewish History, the latest addition to historic Philadelphia's Center City, features three levels of permanent exhibits and a large space at the top level for temporary shows and events. The museum provides an in-depth view of 350 years of Jewish life through interactive media, storyboards and artifacts.

The structure includes an outdoor terrace overlooking Independence Mall, a 200-seat auditorium and classrooms. Construction on the 102,000-sq-ft building began in May 2007, and the building was ready for installation of exhibits by June 2010. It opened to the public last November.
