The Maltz Museum is Re‑Opening!

The Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage (2929 Richmond Road, Beachwood) is pleased to announce that it will re-open to the public on August 23, 2020 with special member exclusive days August 16 – 18. Shuttered since March due to COVID-19, the Museum connected with audiences by offering free online programs. Future plans include continuing offering free online programs, as well as introducing new digital tours and virtual Stop the Hate classroom workshops. For more information about these free online resources and updated Museum hours, times, and pricing, please visit our website: or call 216-593-0575.

“We are living through a remarkable time in our history,” said David Schafer, Managing Director of the Maltz Museum. “We are proud to open our doors once again and welcome back visitors into our physical space. Our safety protocols are in place and we are confident that visitors will feel comfortable with the limitations we’ve put on attendance to honor the six feet distancing guidelines. But, if anyone is wary, we’ve got great things happening online, too. There are choices about how to connect to us with online programs and the launch of new digital tours, coming soon. We hope Northeast Ohio – and beyond – will take advantage of these options.”
