Comments about Smart Destinations Contemporary Jewish Museum:

I can't imagine why anyone would ever rate this Museum 1 star, which is why I had to chime in here with my observations. I found it to be well worth the visit - the building itself is interesting architecturally. When I visited they were running a special exhibition on Harry Houdini. Very interesting material and the exhibit was well put together. The other exhibits and artwork are equally interesting and not everything is jam packed together - there is room to read and reflect. I also loved, loved, loved the gift shop. It was filled with many items that are great keepsakes to remember San Francisco.
