Experience relevant, up-to-the-minute exhibitions at the ever changing Contemporary Jewish Museum. The museum has no permanent collections, but instead partners with international cultural institutions to display art, music, film and literature that provoke thought and debate.
The museum is housed in the historic Jessie Street Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) Power Substation, a 1907 Jessie Square landmark that was repurposed and redesigned by world renowned architect Daniel Libeskind to combine historic and dynamic contemporary perspectives.
The museum offers lectures and gallery talks, film screenings, classes for children, teens and adults, and a museum store with a wide selection of art books, accessories, jewelry, games and toys. Wise Sons Jewish Delicatessen is a great way to end your visit. Check the museum website for current and upcoming exhibitions.
