Your health and safety are of the utmost importance to The Contemporary Jewish Museum (The CJM). The Museum is closely monitoring the changing status of coronavirus, and we are taking precautions to ensure the health and safety of our visitors, staff, and volunteers. On Friday, March 6, 2020, the office of Mayor London Breed issued aggressive new social distancing recommendations for groups of fifty or more people to reduce the spread of COVID-19. In accordance with these recommendations, all tours, programs, and events through March 22, 2020 have been postponed or canceled.
Tours of The Contemporary Jewish Museum’s architecture and current exhibitions led by trained tour guides or docents are offered daily (The Museum is closed on Wednesdays). Visitors are encouraged to interact with guides or docents as they provide insights into the works on view and share the unique history and mission of The Museum.
Requests for Private Tours are welcome. The CJM is an ideal destination for a wide variety of groups: seniors, university classes, tour travel companies, and corporate groups. Join us—you will leave with enriched views about contemporary art, Jewish culture, and history.
