Temple Israel Museum  |  Museum Exhibitions  |  Artifact Collection  |  Museum Formation

The museum within the Temple Israel building opened September 2012, with a new permanent exhibition: Frontier Jewish Leadville. The next year, a small exhibition called Minette Miller: A Portrait opened at the Lake County Public Library, then ended in early 2015. A new exhibition called Selling History: Advertisements of Jewish Leadville Businesses opened in July 2015 in the choir's loft of the building.

As the museum continues to grow in artifacts and in public knowledge over the next several years, more exhibitions will open.
