JERUSALEM: Israel Museum
See Israel’s flagship museum
In the summer of 2010, the Israel Museum completed a three-year expansion and renewal project. The result is astounding: Israel’s largest cultural institution is also one of the finest of its kind in the world! Original exhibits remain, including the world-famous Dead Sea Scrolls, a meticulously accurate model of Jerusalem during the Second Temple Period and the fantastic Youth Wing. But today visitors can also stroll down Synagogue Boulevard, and, as well, explore the most extensive collection of biblical and Holy Land archeology in the world.
