The Pop-Up Cultural Heritage Exhibit features a walk-through full-scale display of Jewish culture as celebrated in the home, as well as lively terra cotta and bronze figures which animate the entire space.

Filled with maps, books, artifacts, and photos, the exhibit tackles the changes of the last 65 years. An entertaining and illustrated timeline lists the advances of our era and provides a framework for considering what has changed in the recent past, and what has not.

People interested in Jewish history, roots and genealogy are especially welcome on Tuesdays at noon, when a member of the Jewish Genealogy Society will be available for consultation. Children’s storybooks are always available and families are welcome to visit.

Featuring a reading area and library, sculpture, informational displays and frequent events, this pop-up museum provides a cultural hub and educational center at Bellevue City Hall in celebration of Jewish heritage in the Pacific Northwest.

Sponsors include Storefronts, Shunpike, JKick, and the City of Bellevue.
