Delve into Israel’s culture, faith and history, with a fascinating private tour of the Israel Museum’s Samuel and Saidye Bronfman Archaeology Wing.
Meet with your expert guide and begin your insightful tour. Visit the museum’s dedicated Archaeology Wing, which showcases Israel’s rich local archaeological heritage over the past 10,000 years. This world-leading collection of artefacts will take you on a journey through history, highlighting significant events and advances in culture, art and technology.
Explore galleries specialising in Neighbouring Cultures and themed exhibitions such as Early Hebrew Writing and Coins in Context. Then relish the rare chance to pore over the first Dead Sea Scrolls in The Shrine of the Book Complex – a serene modern sanctuary inspired by the lids of the jars where the scrolls were discovered – and admire the intricate 1:50 scale Model of Jerusalem in the late Second Temple Period.
You will have plenty of opportunities to ask any questions and come away feeling as though you have a deeper understanding of Israel and its people.
