 Facility Rentals

 The Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life is pleased to offer designated spaces available for events, both during and after public hours, based on availability. The Magnes Collection does not make space available to events that, in its judgment, could disrupt or conflict with the primary use of the building as a public museum and research institution. Priority will be given to the scheduling of Magnes Collection’s programs and activities.

Net proceeds from rentals will help support the Magnes Collection’s primary goal to serve scholars and visitors in providing great accessibility to one of the preeminent Jewish collections in the world.

The Magnes Collection disclaims all responsibility for any and all items left on premises by either the Lessee or guests/agents. This disclaimer applies especially to, but is not limited to, goods and equipment items, which must be removed from the premises immediately following the conclusion of the event.
