Event Details

$5 Admission Night | Contemporary Jewish Museum

Every Thursday night admission to the Contemporary Jewish Museum is just $5 after 5 pm (or $8 during special exhibitions). On these evenings the museum also offers a wide range of cultural events like concerts, film screenings, workshops and talks that are often free with museum admission.

The Contemporary Jewish Museum is housed in a stunning modern building in Jessie Square in the SoMa district of San Francisco.

$5 After 5 Thursdays at CJM
Every Thursday | 5-8 pm
Contemporary Jewish Museum, 736 Mission St, SF
$5 every Thursday after 5 pm ($8 during special exhibitions)

POTENTIAL MUSEUM SURCHARGES – During certain special exhibitions (like Stanley Kubrick: The Exhibition from July 30-October 30) there is a $3 surcharge which makes admission $8. Always check the CJM website for latest pricing.

And don’t forget, every first Tuesday of each month, admission to the museum is free all day.

On select Thursdays, Hardly Strictly Warren Hellman will be activated through live music, featuring bands and acts that have performed over the years during Hardly Strictly Bluegrass (HSB).

The Hellman family band is the daughters, son, grandchildren, and friends of the late Warren Hellman. The Clan rocks the Yud during a Hanukkah holiday ho-down.

In conjunction with NEAT, The CJM presents CLEAT (Cinematic Lo-fi Experiments in Art and Technology). Three movies offer a refreshing break from anesthetizing CGI spectacle, showcasing filmmakers using handmade special effects to creatively realize their ambitious (and sometimes delirious) visions. Films are selected by noted Bay Area film blogger and independent curator, David Robson.

See The 3 Worlds of Gulliver, a kid-friendly but trenchant adaptation of Jonathan Swift’s beloved satire; this fanciful, rarely-screened comedy features special effects by stop-motion animation master Ray Harryhausen (1969; 100 min).
