Museums in Israel: Bible Museum

The Bible Museum is dedicated to the reproduction, study, and translation of the Bible. The museum houses translations of the Bible, reproductions of the Dead Sea Scrolls, and even prints biblical phrases onto coins and stamps that can be purchased at the museum store.

The Bible Museum teaches children about the Bible by offering games, songs, and quizzes on topics in the Bible. Students are encouraged to take field trips to the museum and to participate in activities such as painting that allow them to express their knowledge of the Bible. The museum helps the Bible to become accessible to any person at any age.

For adults, the Bible Museum offers lectures each month. Torah study groups are also sponsered through the Bible Museum.

The Bible Museum is located at the Dizengof House in Tel Aviv. Hours of operation are Sunday through Friday, 9:30-12:30.
