The Israel Museum
What’s special about it:
Israel’s largest cultural institution is home to around 500,000 archaeological artifacts and artworks from prehistoric times to today and arguably one of the most fascinating collections in the world. The Israel Museum is located in the new part of town, close to the Knesset (Israeli parliament) and Yad Vashem (the Holocaust History Museum). Set within a vast and impressive complex, beautifully curated throughout and suitable for visitors of all ages, it’s a must for art and history lovers. Known as the home to the precious Dead Sea Scrolls, the museum will delight visitors with its varied offering and splendid displays.
What you will see there:
The superb collection is divided into Archaeology, Fine Arts, and Jewish Art and Life wings. With so much to see you will have to create an itinerary that suits your interests to make the most of your visit. One of the highlights is the 1:50 Model of Jerusalem in the Second Temple Period, a mesmerizing reconstruction of Jerusalem in the year 66 CE. Besides the potteries, sarcophagi, rare manuscripts and precious artifacts, the collection of costumes from Jewish communities around the world offers a wonderful insight into the life of Jewish communities in Ethiopia, Yemen, and Kurdistan for instance. Another journey into far away communities in space and time is through the four reconstructed synagogues, including an original Venetian construction from the 18h century and a 16th century Cochin house of prayer. In addition to this, there are impressionist and post impressionist art works and one of the finest selections of Israeli art on display. Visitors travelling with young children might be interested in checking the Ruth Youth Wing for Art Education, a vibrant multi-cultural centre, that features a lovely library of illustrated children’s books.
The museum is famous for hosting the Dead Sea Scrolls, the oldest biblical manuscripts in the world, displayed in a spectacular architectural structure known as the Shrine of the Book. Replicas and original manuscripts dating from the third century BCE to the first century CE make for intriguing viewing.
With such a rich collection indoors you’d be forgiven for not paying attention to the museum’s outdoors. But the delightful Billy Art Rose Garden deserves some attention. Its display of world-class sculptures by the likes of Rodin, Picasso and Moore is stunning.
The museum’s temporary exhibitions are renowned for becoming instant blockbusters thanks to their intelligent curation and wide scope. Currently Pharaoh in Canaan:The Untold Story (through October 25) delves into the relationship between Egypt and Canaan during the second millennium BCE while Pablo Picasso: Drawing Inspiration (through November 19, 2016) presents hundreds of paintings and drawings from the 20th century master, both from the museum’s own collection and from abroad.
