This new museum is part of the Tel Aviv University campus. Whilst interesting, it is not a large museum. The collection of models of synagogues from around tye world is fascinating. In this room, there are AV displays, but the main one is rather loud,...More

Although we were disappointed that the main exhibit wasn't open, they had a temporary exhibit of Jewish Humor and of Synagogues Around the World that were very good. No map of the museum though,

Lovely, comfortable, modern museum. Nicely presented exhibits that rotate over time. On the campus of Tel Aviv University. Worth a couple of hours.

This museum was booked as the Diaspora which we believed would be interesting, however, this exhibit was closed for renovation. It was the Jewish Comedy museum instead. It was interesting, but not worth a stop.
