Interactive gallery tours at the Contemporary Jewish Museum keep participants' voices and ideas central to the conversation and promote critical thinking, creativity, and observation skills. The CJM's inquiry-based tours are fun and interactive and are an exceptional way to engage students at the Museum. The CJM invites school groups of all abilities, and guided tours can be adapted to the varying needs of students.
Museum tours are aligned with Common Core Standards. In an hour-long thematic gallery tour that builds upon classroom learning, we introduce students to works of art through discussions and activities.
