This is the museum of the diaspora--so if you are visiting from the diaspora you are in a way the exhibit. It introduces kids to the idea that jews used to live around the world, including in arab countries. It shows the different traditions of these diverse communities and at the same time shows what joins us. Its more models and multimedia than artifacts, and it was an early museum of this type so feels slightly dated, but well worth a visit. The cafe aroma inside has a large porch and is fun to sit at, the gift shop is a must for locally produced items for the whole family.

We enjoy museums. We enjoy history, culture, art and design. I was really looking forward to visiting the Museum of the Jewish People/Diaspora Museum. I was a little disappointed. It is situated on the campus of Tel Aviv University, which is an interesting corner of the city to explore.The museum itself has a very tired atmosphere, like being in a house that someone decorated thirty years ago and never updated. The exhibits felt worn. There were films with ancient headphones which didn't work. There were no markings for the audioguides. In fairness, it's really a question of money. They may not have the endowment, they may not have the benefactors. In Israel, there are many cultural sites vying for a part of the arts and culture budget, so it's understandable that some places may be neglected. But this museum has a great story to tell and still has many fascinating exhibits and teaches us a lot about Jewish life in all of its forms - its similarities and its differences - in communities all over the world.

A very interesting museum on the campus of Tel Aviv University. There is art work, models and examples of life all over the world. I even was able to do a search for my father as a child in the computer ancestry search. Found someone with the same name, but not my dad.
