Went with the kids to the new hero interactive experience and they loved it, everything was in Hebrew and English. Lots for them to see and learn. The highlight for me was the synagogue exhibit which was amazing. There is a whole section on the Ethiopian Jewish community and a Bob Dylan exhibit as well.

The museum on the campus of tel Aviv is incredible. Displays of synagogues from centuries ago. Beautiful exhibits from every corner of the world. From Brooklyn to Bombay. You will be amazed. Take your time. Don't rush. Do it first thing in the morning. Bring your camera or cell phone.

On a recent visit went to the museum after not being there for many years. Being a Minnesotan, I was totally amazed by the fantastic exhibit on Bob Dylan. The museum went to great lengths to put together a very thorough display. Totally enjoyed. The rest of the museum was not as exciting.

No visit to Israel would be complete without spending some time at the Museum of the Jewish People (Beit Hatefutsot) in Tel Aviv. One can easily spend hours slowly moving from exhibit to exhibit and from floor to floor. This musem tells the stroy of the Jewish people during their 2,000 years of dispersion throughout the world. And this is... More

The new building and the superbly curated exhibits shoot the museum up to the top international standard that was previously lacking. The wonderful international Synagogue models from the previous location now have handsome modern displays. The temporary exhibits of the Ethiopian Immigration and Bob Dylan are breathtaking and a source of great nostalgia and pride for all.

This is one of the most interesting and dynamic museums in Israel. Apart from the permanent exhibition, there are temporary ones. The current about the absorption of Jews from an Ethiopian origin is done extremely well A thorough visit will take a few hours and it is better to join a guided tour.

New exhibits are wonderful. Loved the Bob Dylan exhibit. Exhibit on Jews from around the world was fascinating and well done, particularly the videos of 30 + synagogues from around the world.
