Guided Tours                      

We invite you to enjoy an exciting program of exhibitions, family activities, and special events in the Shrine of the Book, the Model of Second Temple Jerusalem, the Weisbord Exhibition Pavilion, and the Ruth Youth Wing, and to experience the beauty of the Billy Rose Sculpture Garden. The Museum has recently begun a major campus renewal program and, while work is underway, our permanent collection galleries are not open to the public. These are exciting times in our Museum, and we wish you an enjoyable visit. We thank you for your continuing participation and support.
Join one of our free daily guided tours, in different languages, led by museum volunteers. Meet at the Entrance Pavilion (unless stated otherwise).
