The National Jewish Memorial Centre has enacted a staged process for reopening to members in accordance with ACT Health Directions.

Our priority is to ensure that we protect the health and safety of all community members.

We will phase the recommencement of activities at the Centre over time and will require, as a minimum: double vaccination and proof of full vaccination status for anyone aged 12 years and over to enter the Centre, pre-registration for attendance at all community events, compliance with capacity limits, continued physical distancing, and masks to be worn at all times.
 

 

The Library, Museum and Art Gallery

 
We encourage members of the public, including school and social groups, to view our cultural collections.  
 
The viewing hours for the Library, Museum and Art Gallery are between 10:00am and 3:00pm, Monday to Thursday, except on Jewish holy days. 
 
Groups are asked to contact the office (actadmin@actjc.org.au) to arrange a guided tour and discuss options.  We have special tours for school groups.
