Magnes Museum collection to move to U.C. Berkeley

A collection of 10,000 music manuscripts, paintings, sculptures, diaries, letters, photographs and other Jewish historical and cultural items will move from the Judah L. Magnes Museum to the University of California, Berkeley.

Gifts totaling $2.5 million over five years from Warren Hellman, Tad Taube and the Koret Foundation will help pay for the transfer of the collection.

The museum will change its name to the Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life at the Bancroft Library.
