Contemporary Jewish Museum Tours

With a variety of cultural programs and exhibitions, the Contemporary Jewish Museum seeks to relevantly share and express the Jewish experience with a modern audience. With various displays of history and art and also recent contributions to architecture, design, even furniture and textiles, there is plenty to see reflecting modern Jewish culture. Exhibits here change frequently as the curators collaborate with national and international partners. With over 10,000 square feet of exhibition space, educational programs, film screenings, and lectures also take place often in the space.

Outside of the many exhibits, many visit to view the unique modern architecture that houses the museum. Architect Daniel Libeskind designed the 63,000-square-foot museum in the 1907 Jessie Street Power Substation. A stainless steel cube, set against the remaining brick of the substation, illustrates the contrast between old and new. There is also a Wise Sons Deli located inside the museum building.
