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.
