Israel Museum

Located next to the Israeli Parlaiment building (The “Knesset “) and the Supreme Court , The Israel museum is indeed in an appropiate location to match its function – Israel’s national Museum.

Founded in 1965, the Israel Museum is especially known for its display of the Dead Sea Scrolls (“Shrine of the Book” ), the Archaeological Wing  (including Pilate Stone , Crucified Jehohanan  and Caiaphas ossuary ), the Jewish Art and Life Wing , and a model of Jerusalem 2000 years ago (“Model of the Second Temple “). 

It also has a nice art garden, a fine art wing and youth wing.

Renewed in 2007-2010 at the cost of $100m, the Israel Museum appearel and display were given a nice “face lift” to match the current taste of the increasing crowds.
