  • Very convenient to visit just a block South of Market Street. Easily viewed within an hour plus, because of the small-ish space. Really liked the "Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival" exhibit, a local ...  more »

  • This museum is located in the Centre of the city, surrounded by beautiful buildings of recent construction. The structure is not distracting but at the same time enables a very effective use of works and exhibitions. The staff is very friendly, the only flaw: the bookshop is too general.

  • Saw the Stanley Kubrick exhibit here, which was great. Not sure what that says about the museum as a whole though.... Seems like a good place. Cool architecture as well
  • Great contemporary art museum. Always check what's on - exhibits change often, and there is almost always something fun and contemporary here, with the connection to Jewishness not necessarily any greater than very tenuous (i.e., the artist was a secular Jew.) Worth a visit after SFMoMA.
  • A cultural space set in an unusual architectural setting with very few right angles. Changing shows reinforce a concept of Jewish relevance in modern life. There is an excellent deli in the lobby with pastrami and corned beef sandwiches - and diet creme soda.
  • Great museum, but be prepared to spend money at their wonderful gift shop. We went during the Kubrick exhibit and had a great time.
  • Went here for the Kubrick exhibit and I was very impressed by the display. Lovely museum with great presentation
