Shelter-in-place Extended Through May

Update April 29, 2020: The Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life remains closed until further notice in compliance with Alameda County’s and the City of Berkeley’s shelter in place order. The health and safety of our community is very important to us; our students and staff are following protocols set by UC Berkeley and Alameda County to reduce the risk of transmission of COVID-19 through social distancing, telecommuting, etc.

Please visit our FacebookInstagram, and Twitter feeds for daily updates and Flickr for digital access to the Collection. In the meantime, UC Berkeley’s Arts & Humanities Division has created a new space to share live digital content such as conversations, lectures, performances, and presentations. View the schedule here.

In anticipation of your visit when we reopen, explore the following pages for our current exhibitions:
