Model of Jerusalem in the Second Temple Period
The Model of Jerusalem in the Second Temple Period greets visitors upon entering the Israel Museum campus. An integral part of the Shrine of the Book complex, the model recreates Jerusalem at the height of its glory in 66 CE, prior to the Great Revolt against the Romans and the subsequent destruction of the Temple. At dusk, the area is enveloped in Jerusalem’s magical atmosphere and enjoys a unique view of the city’s skyline. The site is suitable for dinners and receptions complemented by a lecture or performance in the adjacent Dorot Auditorium, or a “live marketplace” reenacting daily life in Jerusalem during the Second Temple period.
25–1,000 participants
