Hasmonean heritage museum

Set in the heart of the Modern city of Modi’in, the Modi’in Heritage Museum is a suitable institution to mark the city’s past. Opened in 2021, the museum’s façade bears several beams in different sizes. Each presents a different chapter in the long and turbulent history of the region.

The museum is “children friendly” and invites visitors to participate in different activities: healing a broken clay pot, finding ancient coins in the sand, exploring an ancient burial cave, navigating on an interactive map, and more.

The Museum’s second-floor visitors are invited to a futuristic cinema space. The audio-visual show follows the main chapters of Modi’in, from antiquity to its modern-era development.
