Atlanta's Jewish History and Heritage MuseumThe unassuming gated building is truly an undiscovered Atlanta museum that highlights the importance of the city's prominent Jewish citizens. The Breman Museum is a part of the Selig Center, which has its own library and archives and regularly holds events.
The Breman has three exhibits: one on notable Jewish Atlantans, another on the Holocaust and a third that rotates regularly. The Eighteen Artifacts exhibit highlights different pieces from residents like the owner of Jacob's Pharmacy, the first to carry Coca Cola, and Arthur Blank, one of the founders of the Home Depot. The second exhibit is Absence of Humanity, a very in-depth exhibit on the Holocaust with artifacts from the concentration camps and the people who lived there. The newest exhibit focused on Jewish writer and illustrator Maurice Sendak with child-friendly displays.
Parking is free and admission is $12 for adults. It's easy to miss the turn, but it's right next to the Center for Puppetry Arts and within walking distance of the Arts Center MARTA Station.
