Writing at NoCamels, Viva Sarah Press shares five ways to stay cool this summer in the Holy Land:

No one needs to be told that summertime in Israel is hot. But the summer is also a time of great fun around the country. There are festivals and activities galore just waiting to be enjoyed.

From water fun to tunnel tours, hiking in streams to rafting down rivers, enjoying a concert to relaxing on the beach, there really is something for everyone…

Cool Museums

Go indoors to enjoy air-conditioned exhibits. There are tens of museums across this country bursting with displays on the themes of art, history, heritage, science, nature, Holocaust, Judaica, archaeology and multidisciplinary issues.

From the Israel Museum in Jerusalem to the Tel Aviv Museum of Art to Madatech in Haifa, and everything in between, there are amazing collections of local and international artifacts just waiting to be ogled.

“The museums are an added value of enrichment; they don’t replace the need to be outdoors. They further enrich and allow young minds – and not just young minds. The main feature of these museums is they are there to enrich and build on the experience of the outdoors,” Gidon Bromberg, Israeli Director of EcoPeace Middle East, told NoCamels in an article on the country’s nature museums.
