The William Breman Jewish Heritage Museum came about after a 1983 exhibit Jews and Georgians: A Meeting of Cultures 1733-1983, created a need for a space dedicated to the interpretation and preservation of the Jewish experience. The Museum became a permanent resident of Spring Street in downtown Atlanta in 1992. Its two permanent collections are Creating Community: The Jews of Atlanta from 1845 to The Present and Absence of Humanity: The Holocaust Years. Along with its two permanent collections the Breman Museum also houses the Ida Pearl and Joseph Cuba Community Archives and Genealogy Center, the Weinberg Center for Holocaust Education Center, the Discovery Center for kids, and a Library housing archival and genealogical research for both scholars and students.
The Breman Museum's newest exhibit, Zap! Pow! Bam! The superhero: The Golden Age of Comic Books, 1938-1950, gives visitors a chance to browse through an exhibit featuring original comic book art, objects belonging to the creators and publishers and rare interviews from the 1940's with the artists and writers.
