Museum of the Jewish People in Israel Gets a Makeover
The Fellowship | June 24, 2021
At this Tel Aviv museum you can check out artifacts like a 15th century Book of Esther scroll or Leonard Cohen’s guitar. And now, this Jewish museum has even more to offer, reports Israel21c:
“Every nation deserves a place that tells its story and makes people proud of who they are and their heritage and roots,” said Nevzlin.
“It is a privilege to realize the transformation of this institution, which now becomes the largest and most comprehensive Jewish museum in the world. The museum will serve as a beacon of Jewish identity and culture, celebrating our unique history and future.”
The decade-long, $100 million expansion tripled gallery space to 72,000 square feet across four wings spanning three floors. Visitors of all faiths and ages are guided on a multimedia, multi-sensory journey through the 4,000-year history of the Jewish people.
Israel21c also reports that the Museum of Jewish people is open every day, including weekends. You can take a tour in several offered languages. For adults, general admission is $16 and seniors’ general admission is $8. It’s free for children five and under. If you are going to take a trip to Israel, this is a great place to visit. Also, the whole family will get an overview of Jewish culture, artifacts, history, and more!
