The Jewish History and Culture collection depicts the 5,000 year history of the Jewish people from the pre-Canaanite era through the settling of the Jewish communities of Tulsa and the American southwest. This exhibit includes more than 10,000 archeological pieces, ritual and life cycle objects, enthnographic costumes, synagogue textiles, historical documents, and works of fine art.

The Herman and Kate Kaiser Holocaust Exhibition explores the Holocaust in the context of lessons for today through art, artifacts, and text. The museum also features the Jewish Genealogical Society of Tulsa/Markovitz Jewish Genealogy Study and Research Center. The National Council of Jewish Women Holocaust Education Center, which joins the Julius and Gertrude Livingston Oklahoma Jewish Archive, is the state repository for documenting Jewish life in Oklahoma and also can be found on site.
