The tour is recommended for visitors who are at least 12 years of age. Parents are advised to preview the exhibition and use their discretion.
Walk-up tours of Designing Home: Jews and Midcentury Modernism will be offered on Sundays in May at 12 P.M., except on May 24 when the Museum is closed for the Jewish holiday of Shavuot.
