The Jewish Museum Tours

The Jewish Museum
The Jewish Museum is both art museum and cultural hub on New York's must-see Museum Mile. Visitors can enjoy world-class fine arts exhibits—from monograph shows to group exhibitions—and a celebration of Judaism and Jewish culture. With contemporary art, panel discussions, and more, the Jewish Museum appeals to art lovers of all backgrounds.

The Basics
Founded in 1904, the Jewish Museum presents exhibitions, programs, and events that encourage cross-cultural dialogue and champion art and artists from around the world. To visit the museum, many visitors avoid public transit with a hop-on-hop-off-bus tour along Fifth Avenue. To make a day of it, you can also pair a visit to the museum with a walking tour of Central Park or film-themed neighborhood tour.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Visitors that want to learn more about Jewish art, culture, and the Jewish experience shouldn't miss the Jewish Museum.
  • The museum holds a collection of more than 30,000 objects reflecting the Jewish identity, a draw for Jewish visitors.
  • Check the calendar before you arrive, since numerous events, educational programs, and art-making workshops are hosted weekly.
  • Get the most out of your visit with a gallery tour; tours are offered during the week, and last about 45 minutes.

How to Get There
Located on the Upper East Side's Museum Mile, the most convenient way to reach the Jewish Museum is by hop-on-hop-off-bus tour, city bus, or subway. To take the subway, take the 6 train to 96th Street, and walk west until your reach Fifth Avenue. You can also take the M1, M2, or M3 bus, all of which run on Fifth. Find the museum on Fifth Avenue between 92nd and 93rd streets.

When to Get There
The Jewish Museum is open six days a week, and closed on Wednesdays and major Jewish holidays. The museum offers free admission on Saturdays, but because Saturday is Shabbat—the Jewish day of rest—certain interactive museum features are not available, and the museum shop is closed. To avoid the crowds, visit on Monday or Tuesday, since the museum is busiest over the weekend.

Visiting the Guggenheim Museum

Continue a day experiencing art and culture on Museum Mile with a stop at the renowned Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. This beacon of modern and contemporary art is well-known for both its exhibitions and bold, spiral-shaped building, designed by the revered American architect Frank Lloyd Wright. As the museum is a popular destination for locals and tourists, you should prebook admission and enjoy skip-the-line gallery access.

Private: Jews of the Gilded Age: 5th Ave and the Mansions of Millionaire's RowPrivate Sightseeing Tours

Private: Jews of the Gilded Age: 5th Ave and the Mansions of Millionaire's Row

Since the early days of the United States, 5th Avenue has been a desired address. However, since the creation of Central Park, 5th Avenue became the elite address where the rich and famous hired the greatest architects to compete over who could outdo their peers. We are left with a 100+ years of art, gossip, and hilarity. These families laid the groundwork of the American Jewish community. We'll start by the Plaza Hotel at the southeastern corner of Central Park and walk up 5th Avenue with stops along the main drag, in the park, and along side streets. We'll finish at the Jewish Museum (formerly the Warburg Mansion) at 92nd Street and 5th Avenue.
