The National Museum of American Jewish History filed for bankruptcy. It owes over $30 million to its bondholders, predominately for their building construction. The proceedings will not affect the museum operations or staffing.

What a shame!  This is a lovely but possibly under-visited museum. I spent several hours there a few years ago.  It's Holocaust exhibit was especially moving.

To clarify, It is the  National Museum of American Jewish History in Philadelphia, not the Smithsonian  National Museum of American History in Washington, DC.
