Almost Back to Normal: The Museum of the Jewish People Reopens on July 1

In accordance with the regulations of the Ministry of Health

After closing our doors for Three and a half months, we are thrilled and delighted to open them again as of July 1th, according to the full guidelines of the Ministry of Health.

We missed the queues, the muttering of groups and their guides, the rumble of children in the new shiny lobby – we missed all of you and everything!

True, Covid-19 Pandemic is not over yet and there are some limitations, but we worked hard in order to form a safe place for you to visit, learn and experience.

You will be expected to have your temperature taken, to wear a mask, to sanitize your hands and to follow social distancing guidelines.

On the occasion of our return, we are giving away a free ticket to the new core exhibition, slated to open this coming fall, to every ticket buyer. Read about the new core exhibition, a 60,000 square foot celebration of the Jewish story as you have never experienced before.

During the lock down, we initiated many activities from home for you and your families, and remained in touch via our Facebook page and site. You are still invited to enjoy them, until you are able to come and visit the museum.

Unfortunately, the Heroes Gallery, as well as a few interactive exhibits in the Jewish Humor Exhibition, will have to remain unavailable for now, in order to follow restrictions. The rest of the exhibits are open, as well as the museum store, and the Aroma café. We are now offering also Three free guided tours (in Hebrew) every weekday, and one on Fridays.
