Visit the CJM in Downtown San Francisco
The stunning Contemporary Jewish Museum was once a PG&E power station that world-renowned architect Daniel Libeskind transformed in 1998. Today, it functions as an ode to both history and the future. The museum features rotating exhibits that are simultaneously Jewish and San Franciscan, and always human and well-curated. Recently, a collection of poet Allen Ginsberg's photographs told the story of the Beat Generation, and an exhibit on spirituality and art revered the timeless. The CJM also hosts a variety of programs and has discounted entry on Thursday nights.
