Contemporary Jewish Museum

Contemporary Jewish Museum

The Contemporary Jewish Museum shows exhibitions and programmes that deepen contemporary perspectives of Jewish history, culture, art and ideology.

The museum has temporary exhibitions that may or may not be of interest to you, so it is advisable to check the website before going to know what's going on.

The outside of the building grabs your attention by its unusual shape. It was designed by the famous architect Daniel Libeskind, who was also in charge of the urban renewal of the World Trade Center in New York.

For Lovers of Contemporary & Modern Art

If you're in this area of San Francisco, it is worth walking past to check out the architecture of this building. However, it has to be said that the exhibitions it houses are quite specific and unless you particularly like modern and contemporary art, there are plenty of other places to visit in San Francisco that you might find more entertaining.
