Close alert

The Museum of Jewish Heritage, like most American Jewish institutions, maintains strong security measures. During this time, we have increased them. The safety of all our visitors – students and adults alike – is our primary concern.


Proof of vaccination is no longer required for Museum visitors.

Face masks covering the nose and mouth are recommended for Museum visitors to wear, though no longer required. PPE is available for visitors upon request.

Visitors are required to:

  • Obtain an advance ticket for in person events at the Museum.
  • Avoid visiting the Museum if you have symptoms of COVID-19, have been diagnosed with COVID-19 within the past 14 days, or have been in close contact (within 6 feet (2 m) for 10 minutes or more) with someone infected with or experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 within the past 14 days.
  • Register in advance for in-person programs.

The Museum does not allow firearms or weapons of any kind and is considered a “sensitive location” under New York State’s concealed carry law. For further information please see the NYS gun safety site: Frequently Asked Questions, and concealed carry restrictions.
