The exhibitions displayed in the Ruth Youth Wing have secured its reputation in Israel and abroad, attracting visitors of all ages. The experiential-learning character of the exhibitions expands horizons and develops creative thinking. Each of the more than 100 exhibitions presented to date by the Ruth Youth Wing has addressed a particular theme such as: “Food in Art: A Matter of Taste; “Beauty and the Book; and “It’s About Time.” The exhibitions create an alternative learning environment, which blends observation and activity, simultaneously engaging  and challenging the visitor.

The Youth Wing is also home to rare collections, all of which hail from the world of the child, featuring toys, dolls, rare books, and illustrations. They are used in research and exhibitions, and also loaned to museums in other countries.
