ADMISSION: Free with Museum admission
The Zim Zoom Family Room is named for a creation moment in Jewish tradition, the mystically understood tzim tzum—or contraction—that allowed space for creation and light. Join us anytime in this cozy family corner filled with interactive art, activities, and periodic pop-up activities and performances.
Space is the most immediate way through which we understand and experience the world around us. I hope this installation transports viewers to an imaginary impossible place and offers a chance to slow down and for a moment, to form a new relationship to space.
Experience our new interactive art installation, Beyond II, by Amy M. Ho, which plays with our relationship to the physical world. Visitors of all ages are invited to peek inside a limitless field and create miniature objects to add to the infinity box.
Enjoy our intimate screening booth sharing a regularly changing curated collection of films on Jewish life for family audiences.
Create and explore the symbolism of light on the giant Light Wall, a unique interactive community collaborative activity.
Curl up for a quiet moment with a good book. Choose from a curated variety of topics, authors and reading levels.
Spend time at the maker table and experiment with new materials while making connections to exhibitions and each other.
Create new stories and share performances in this puppet space.
