Maltz Museum Closure due to COVID-19

In response to the recent health advisory and in an effort to minimize the spread of Covid-19, the Maltz Museum will temporarily close, effective November 20, 2020. A re-opening date is yet to be determined and will be based on safety guidelines issued by Cuyahoga County, the State of Ohio, and the Center for Disease Control.

While the Museum’s physical building is closed, our work will not stop. Staff will continue to work remotely. A robust selection of online programs are being offered, in partnership with local and national institutions. A list of current offerings can be found on our website at

We will also continue to offer our digital Stop the Hate tour and free classroom workshops for Northeast Ohio students and schools as part of our Stop the Hate anti-bias education initiative. The annual essay contest is open and accepting entries. To learn more about our Stop the Hate tour, workshops, and contest, please visit the education portal at

Stop the Hate items are available in our Museum Store, along with a wide variety of Judaica and artisan gifts that are perfect for the holidays. Many items are on sale, including Israeli made jewelry from sought after designers like Ayala Bar and unique finds connected to past special exhibitions. Our next special exhibition is on the life and times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. RBG figurines, pins, facemasks, and more are already in our store.

If you have pre-purchased tickets to visit, please note: A Museum representative will be reaching out to you to reschedule or refund your tickets. Thank you!
