    The Israel Museum, the largest cultural
    institution in Israel, houses encyclopedic
    collections of works dating from prehistory to
    the present day in Archaeology, the Fine Arts,
    and Jewish Art and Life. Since opening in 1965,
    the Museum has built a collection of nearly
    500,000 objects representing the full scope of
    artistic creativity and world material culture.
    The galleries at the top of the campus contain
    permanent displays from the collections as
    well as temporary exhibitions. In addition, the
    Museum offers its local and international visitors
    a dynamic Youth Wing, a serene Art Garden,
    and the Shrine of the Book, home to the
    2,000-year-old Dead Sea Scrolls.
    In the summer of 2010, the Museum
    completed a comprehensive upgrade of its
    20-acre campus, adding new galleries, facilities,
    and public spaces and transforming its three
    collection wings. Preserving the spirit of the
    original design by Alfred Mansfeld and Dora Gad,
    the renewal led by James Carpenter Design
    Associates of New York and Efrat-Kowalsky
    Architects of Tel Aviv is designed to enhance
    visitor experience of the Museum’s unique
    collections, architecture, and setting.
