Posted By on August 12, 2020

The Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage in Beachwood has set its plan for reopening to the public, with new hours and pricing, and enhanced safety measures.

The museum, which has been closed since March as a result of the pandemic, announced that Sunday, Aug. 23, will be the official reopening date, though it also will be open for special, member-exclusive days from Sunday, Aug.16, through Tuesday, Aug. 18.

Under its new schedule, the museum will be open Sunday through Tuesday by advance-purchase, timed-ticket reservations only. Self-guided museum tours on those days will be scheduled at 10 a.m., noon and 2 p.m. Timeslots at 10:30 a.m., 12:30 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. will feature a program called "The Interactive Biography of Stanley Bernath" as well as self-guided museum tours. Tickets can be reserved by calling 216-593-0575 or via the website at

Prices will be $10 for guests age 12 and older, $5 for those ages 5 to 11, and free for members and guests age 4 and under.

Masks will be required for entry to the building. Prior to entry, visitors will have their temperature taken and will answer health screening questions. The building will have signage reminders to remain 6 feet apart for social distancing.

"We are living through a remarkable time in our history," said David Schafer, managing director of the museum, in a statement. "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 6 feet distancing guidelines."

He noted that the museum will continue to offer free online programs, and it plans to introduce new digital tours and virtual "Stop the Hate" classroom workshops.
