Temporary Closure

March 13, 2020

The Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Culture will be closed to the public through March 27 as a precautionary measure to ensure public health and safety. This is a difficult decision to make, but the health of our community is very important to us. Our decision also aligns with measures set forth by the University of California Berkeley, as well as many of our peer institutions.

Regular updates will be posted on this page. Meanwhile you may follow our Facebook and Instagram feeds for museum-related content and cultural connections.

In the meantime, you may also visit our exhibition pages for:

·   In Real Times | Arthur Szyk: Art & Human Rights (1926-1951),
