Visitor Services

Dear Visitors,

Excitement is in the air at the Israel Museum, as we near completion of our major campus renewal project and look forward to our public opening in July 2010.  As the project enters into its final phase and our permanent galleries remain closed, we invite you to participate in our continuing programs in the Shrine of the Book, Model of Second Temple Period Jerusalem, and Ruth Youth Wing.

We wish you a pleasurable visit, and we urge you to return this summer to experience the new and renewed beauty of our completed campus and our full program of exhibitions and activities.
