Open Wed-Sun, 10 AM - 5 PM


Becoming a member is more than a donation – it is a way to help us share the history and lessons of the Holocaust, inspire visitors to become Upstanders, and encourage those visitors to speak out on issues that are important to them and their communities.

Members enjoy unlimited Museum admission and free or reduced admission to our programs. When you become a member, you become a part of the Museum family and ensure that our critical work will continue for generations to come.
