Museum in the Media 2010


Welcome to the Israel Museum, Jerusalem, Israel's largest museum and leading cultural institution - and one of the world's great museum stories of the 20th century. 

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, and to enjoy the beauty of the Billy Rose Art Garden.
