Art Museum
“You’ll want to devote at least a day to Israel’s largest cultural institution, the Israel Museum, which was re-launched in the summer of 2010 after a major overhaul. The Museum is made up of many different wings and a huge collection of art and archaeological findings. One of the major highlights is the distinctly shaped Shrine of the Book, which houses many ancient manuscripts including the Dead Sea Scrolls. Other highlights include the Youth Wing for children, the Billy Rose Art Garden, which showcases the development of western sculpture over the centuries, the Museum’s Fine Arts Wing and its in-depth Archaeology Wing.”
