As a private, non-profit institution located on Independence Mall in Philadelphia, the National Museum of American Jewish History will remain open during the federal government shutdown.
The museum will offer “pay-what-you-wish” admission during the duration of the shutdown. The museum will operate under its regularly-scheduled hours; all events taking place at the museum will continue as scheduled.
