Every Wednesday night this summer, the National Museum of American Jewish History opens its Old City doors for free (or for any sized donation) from 5 to 8 p.m. for its brand new Pay-What-You-Wish Wednesday events.
Use this opportunity to visit Hemmed Up: Stories through Textiles which is set to visit the museum from July 9 to August 25, and The Snowy Day and the Art of Ezra Jack Keats, an upcoming exhibit which is slated to open on July 19.
In addition to the regular museum programming, every Wednesday at 6:30 p.m., themed tours will make their way around the the museum. Weekly themes include Creativity, Art, and Design; Jews and the Law; Women in American Jewish History; and American Jewish Writers.
To keep up the merriment and the theme of an inexpensive evening, the museum’s Pomegranates Cafe will serve complimentary wine and hors d’oeuvres for guests.
The Pay-What-You-Wish event runs through Wednesday, August 28, and don’t forget, the Philadelphia Museum of Art also hosts its own Pay-What-You-Wish Wednesday nights. Mark your calendars now and pay both museums a visit.
