Message from the Membership Department
Let me take this opportunity to inform you that the Israel Museum has begun a  campus renewal program this year, in order to improve your visiting experience and to provide facilities to meet the changing needs of the public, including easier accessibility, covered walkways, expansion of the galleries, etc.

In this framework, construction work has begun on the main building and the areas around it. These are all closed to the public.  A variety of exhibitions and activities are offered to members in the Weisbord Exhibition Pavilion, the Shrine of the Book, the model of Jerusalem in the Second Temple Period, the Youth Wing, and the Sculpture Garden.  In addition, a new exhibition has opened at Ticho House, and another new one at the Rockefeller Museum. 

In the fall of 2008, we will begin construction on the front of the Museum.  The public restrooms will be moved to new facilities that are now being built next to the Model of Jerusalem; the Weisbord Exhibition Pavilion will be closed; and exhibitions in the Youth Wing will continue to be expanded.
