About Sherwin Miller Museum of Jewish Art
A Tulsa mainstay for more than 50 years, the Sherwin Miller Museum of Jewish Art houses a permanent art collection, traveling exhibits and more than 10,000 Holocaust-era Jewish artifacts. The museum does an excellent job of contextualizing the reality and effects of the Holocaust on Jews and marginalized individuals with the Kaiser Holocaust exhibit, which chronicles Jewish life before, during and after World War II. It also details the history of how Jews came to settle in Oklahoma. The SMMJA also boasts a moving photo collage of images of Anne Frank, displayed alongside excerpts of her now-famous diary.
From a religious standpoint, the SMMJA is required viewing for anyone interested in gaining a more expansive understanding of world religions and history, and how they’ve developed in Tulsa. Venture upstairs for a detailed look at relics, mementos and objects depicting cultural mainstays within Jewish life and tradition, including objects used in celebrations life and death, worship, family traditions and cultural rites of passage. The second floor also houses the SMMJA’s non-permanent collections, which run the gamut from modern art to pop culture.
