Student Tours

We are currently accepting reservations for virtual and in-person school tours. Please note that we experience our highest demand between January and May, so we kindly request that you schedule your group's tour as soon as possible. 

All education programs are aligned with the California Content Standards for English-Language Arts and History-Social Science. Student tours are customized per class and available for students in 5th grade and up. Our staff tailors each tour to meet the educational needs of your students.

As mandated by the Museum's founding survivors, all student tours are FREE. To continue providing free Holocaust education programming, donations are greatly appreciated.

Tours are docent-led, artifact-focused, and inquiry based. Docents engage students through analytical thinking and closely examining the Museum’s exhibitions and Holocaust era artifacts.

Tours are available in Hebrew and Spanish by request.
