Collection and In-Kind Donations

The Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life is a living collection that grows and evolves with future acquisitions, continuing the legacy of the Judah L. Magnes Museum, which through gifts and acquisitions grew to become one of the most respected Jewish collections in the world. 

At present, the curatorial staff of The Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life is leveraging the opportunity presented by our facility, where most of the museum holdings are now stored, to carefully review and document what The Magnes collected during almost half a century. Our acquisitions at this time proceed at a slow and careful pace. 

If you wish to inquire about a possible gift to the collection, you can fill out our online form or send an email to the Collection Research and Information Desk.

Please also consider supporting the collection through the Friends of the Magnes
