In accordance with government regulations and health guidance, visitors must reserve timed tickets and observe additional policies as part of their visit: Timed tickets are necessary to help the Jewish Museum maintain a building capacity of 25% and a socially distanced experience for all visitors. The Museum’s members must also reserve timed tickets. All visitors are required to wear face coverings that adequately cover the nose and mouth. Temperature checks will be required of all visitors via non-contact body temperature scanners. Visitors with a body temperature above 100.4°F will not be admitted into the Museum and have their tickets rescheduled. Visitors will be expected to maintain six feet between other visitors or groups. Capacity signage will be posted throughout the Museum and one-way paths designated through the galleries.
