Israel, with its rich and often bloody history, has, not surprisingly, dozens of museums housing some of the world's most fascinating archaeological, cultural, artistic and religious artifacts.
We strongly recommend finding the time to visit Yad Vashem in Jerusalem - Israel's Holocaust Museum and Memorial. Yad Vashem's exhibitions are viewed by almost a million people every year, and present the Holocaust narrative unlike any other museum. Yad Vashem also contains a research institute and the largest collection of audio and video Holocaust testimonies in the world.
We also suggest you to visit the Israel Museum in Jerusalem, where you can see the Dead Sea scrolls, an amazing array of archeological artifacts, Judaica throughout the ages and art, and the Tower of David Museum, that takes you through an emotional journey in a stunning backdrop. Finally, don't miss a visit to Beit Hatfutsot (the 'Diaspora Museum' or the 'Museum of the Jewish People') in Tel Aviv which looks at the development of Jews, Judaism and Statehood throughout the ages from the perspectives of family, community, faith, culture and others.
All of the museums have permanent exhibitions as well as temporary exhibitions, so it's worth visiting each of these museums more than once! See below for the museums we offer and book online with instant confirmation to to avoid the lines!
