  • I went not really knowing what to expect. The largest gallery was unavvailable because it was being configured for the next installation, but I LOVED both the Cary Leibowitz (clever, funny sad, outrag...  more »
  • The place is very nice and very graphic. Count $ 15 admission for 2 exhibitions. The Museum is in fact very small. We did not have to fall on the best expo. Very average, to do in case of rain.

  • 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
