When & Where
The Breman Museum
The William Breman Jewish Heritage Museum is Atlanta’s only Jewish museum offering its visitors a wealth of experience spanning Jewish Arts, History, and Identity.
The Breman Museum is home to exhibition galleries, the Weinberg Center for Holocaust Education and the Cuba Family Archives for Southern Jewish History. The Weinberg Center informs visitors from every religious and cultural background on the history of the Holocaust through the personal stories of survivors now living in Atlanta. These personal testimonies, both in film and in person, teach visitors about the universal themes of human dignity and diversity and the responsibility we all have as human beings to prevent genocide. The Cuba Family Archives, the largest repository of southern Jewish history, houses collections of documents, photographs, artifacts, and oral histories all pertaining to Jewish life in Georgia and Alabama. These collections, as well as our Library, are accessible to students, teachers, researchers, history aficionados and home genealogists alike. In addition to the permanent galleries devoted to the Weinberg Center and the Cuba Family Archives, The Breman also has a special exhibitions gallery which presents various exhibitions pertinent to the museum’s mission.
