Since its foundation in 1962, the Judah L. Magnes Museum made its institutional assets available to individuals and groups in the Bay Area and Beyond, and allowed them to create a host of satellite institutions, ranging from a full-fledged research center (the Western Jewish History Center) to focus groups devoted to specific endeavors, such as cultural programming (film, poetry, Holocaust remembrance, outreach) and historical preservation.

Each one of these institution constitutes an important chapter in the history of the Magnes, and many of them grew from the status of satellite institution to independent organization fully operating to this day.
