In light of the current widespread efforts to contain the coronavirus (COVID-19), the Museum of Tolerance will remain temporarily closed to the public until further notice. Meanwhile, we are committed to staying connected with and serving our Museum community with virtual classes for youth and professionals, online resources and digital programming. Please see the MOT website home page for more information.

The situation with the coronavirus (COVID-19) is rapidly changing, and we will continue to monitor recommendations from the CDC, the World Health Organization, Los Angeles County Department of Health and elected officials and respond accordingly. Our highest priority is the health and safety of our community, visitors, staff and volunteers.

We ask for your patience during this uncertain time. We hope you stay safe as well.

Any changes and updates to programs or hours will be announced by email, on our website, and through social media (@museumoftolerance).
