  • In 2016, the Jewish Museum of San Francisco presents the exhibition on Stanley Kubrick. a journey in the imagination of the Director out of the ordinary. The architecture of this museum is innovative as well as other exhibitions.

  • Great museum. Focuses on having just a few high quality exhibits. Volunteers were very helpful. ++for kids. Bunch of projects for them to do. Look at there website for special kid events. Only suggestion would be to keep all the projects focused on a theme from the museum. Plus - free to kids any day and free for everyone on Tuesdays.
  • Very cool architecture. Special exhibit on Stanley Kubrick was on. Awesome exhibit! Check up and see what's on before you go. The first floor was in transition so I only saw the SK exhibit.
  • Most parts unrelated to Judaism, cafe staff is unhelpful, diverts questions and is misleading regarding meat being kosher. The gift shop is interesting and the museum is an architectural marvel from the outside . If you do choose to visit, first Tuesday of the month is free and be prepared to open bags soon after entering for security
  • The interior architecture is disorienting and oppressive. I don't appreciate passing through a metal scanner to access the restaurant or gift shop.
  • Great and beautiful building. A pleasure to see the various traveling exhibits.
