Israel Museum

The Shrine of the Book

The Israel Museum, Jerusalem is Israel’s largest museum and leading cultural institution – and one of the world’s great museum stories of the 20th century. No journey to the Land of Israel is complete without a visit to the magnificent treasures displayed throughout the Museum’s four wings and expansive gardens, covering periods and world cultures from ancient through modern times: A renowned permanent collection of fine art; Rare Biblical artifacts and the world’s most comprehensive collection of the archaeology of the Land of Israel; The Shrine of the Book housing the Dead Sea Scrolls; The world’s most complete collection of Judaica; The Ruth Youth Wing; The Billy Rose Art Garden. The museum includes some 500,000 archeological and anthropological exhibits. Three new pavilions have been added in recent years. One contains a beautifully chosen collection of pre-Colombian Central American art from 2000 BC to 1550 AD; another is a separate building housing ancient glass; and the third is the Walter and Charlotte Floersheimer Pavilion  for Impressionist and Post-Impressionist Art with works by Corot, Monet, Renoir, Degas, Gauguin, Matisse, and others. The new Weisbord Pavilion, just across the walk from the museum's entrance building and gift shop, houses a small collection of Rodin as well as visiting exhibits of modern art.  Over 30 new exhibitions each year.
