Jewish Museum Milwaukee is excited to reopen. Check out your favorite parts of the permanent collection. Is it the Chagall Tapestry? Or the Magda Watts Dolls? Or the Mighty Golda Meir? We will soon begin a gradual, phased reopening of the Museum—and because your health and safety remain our highest priority, we are implementing new guidelines.  


New Hours
We are making a few changes to our hours for the health of our entire community. Monday through Friday 10:00-11:00 AM are reserved for individuals over 60 years of age or those most at-risk. The Museum will also close 30 minutes earlier than in the past for staff to sanitize.

A Clearly Marked Pathway Through the Museum
Follow the line to see all JMM has to offer and to ensure that visitors don’t bottleneck within our exhibit spaces. You can enter the museum through the door on Prospect Avenue. (Parking alongside and behind the building is FREE as always.)

Capacity Limits
Timed tickets will be used to ensure social distancing. Thirteen tickets will be available every 30 minutes and no more than 26 visitors will be allowed in the building at any given time to ensure adequate space between visitors.

Same Warm Welcome, Now with Touchless Payment
JMM is moving admission purchases online to make check-in quick and easy at our enclosed plexiglass front desk. Once in the building, disposable gloves will be available if you would like to peruse our book cart. If you decide to buy a book or join the Museum, these purchases will be touchless. Thanks to the Fund for Jewish Milwaukee for enabling us to provide these safeguards. 

A Safe Space Where Conversations Happen
Help protect everyone in our community by following a few basic guidelines. Read the full Code of Conduct below. We require that you wear a mask within the Museum; you will have your temperature checked upon entering the building and be asked to answer health questions; you will receive a stylus or gloves to use the Museum interactives; please maintain appropriate distance for those who are not in your “quaran-team.”

Code of Conduct: 

The safety of our staff and visitors is our number one concern as you enjoy Jewish Museum Milwaukee. Please keep everyone safe by adhering to the following precautions. 

I Agree

Please take a moment to read the following Visitor Code of Conduct before making your reservation to visit. By proceeding to reserve your ticket (below), you agree to follow these protocols and to support a safe environment.


1.) Masks; 2.) Temperature Checks; and 3.) Health Questions are required to enter the Museum. If you do not have a mask, we are happy to provide you with one. Do not enter the Museum if you are exhibiting any symptoms consistent with COVID-19 or have been in contact with someone diagnosed with COVID-19 in the past 14 days. 

HEALTH QUESTIONS: Have you experienced any of the following symptoms? Coughing or shortness of breath? Fever or chills? Fatigue? Muscle aches? Headache? New loss of smell and/or taste? Sore throat? Runny nose? Nausea or vomiting? Diarrhea? Have you been in contact with someone who was diagnosed with COVID-19 in the last two weeks?
If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then refrain from visiting the Museum until the answers are all no.


Follow the green lines and arrows through the Museum. The path will take you to every area. If you want to skip a section, just follow the path and continue. 


Maximum capacity signs are posted for smaller areas. If an area is at capacity, please wait your turn. X’s have been placed at key intervals to show 6-foot distancing. 


Buy your timed tickets online and avoid keypads. No cash or checks will be processed for now. Use the stylus to work the interactives. 


Please be kind to our staff and each other. Respect the directions of the staff. We are here to help. 

COVID-19 is extremely contagious, and the risk of exposure exists in any location. The precautions listed here are intended to minimize your risk of contracting COVID-19 but are not a guarantee of your safety.
