  • I was going to go to the museum last Friday, but one of the ushers told me it'd be free on the first Tuesday of the month. So, that's when I returned. I found it rather small. I was expecting somethin...  more »
  • This museum has no permanent exhibits, so I'm sure visitors' experiences vary based on the installations. A past visit in 2912 featured history of the Jews of San Francisco and some art. Thrilled this...  more »
  • We saw the Chast exhibition which was so interesting. What a sense of humour she has about the mundaneness of life. And in such detail.  more »

  • The space itself is very cool and contemporary. Would be a great thinking space. Went there for the Roz Chast cartoon memoirs exhibition, a good look at the artist's work and life. I'm not Jewish but was pleasantly surprised by the permanent exhibition by Leibowitz. It embodies the spirit of this most liberal city of the world, while encompassing unique Jewish values that people of different cultures can share.
  • This place is delightful, beautiful, informative, and disturbing. As it should be. (However, don't bother to go to the cafe here, it's not that good. There's better only a few more steps away.)
  • The architecture and exhibits were interesting, but several exhibits were poorly presented and difficult to engage with. Rather overpriced for the amount of content inside (I spent under 2 hours here).
  • The outside is beautiful. I went here for a conference and the inside was amazing.
  • Really awesome space, and the Roz Chast exhibit is awesome! I was chuckling the entire time. The Cary Liebowitz is also super.
