Overview
More
The Museum has on display collections of original ancient instruments and proposes a fascinating tour that incorporates unique interactive content using hi-tech. Here you can experience the creation of this tradition in an exciting tour guided by "Grandpa Levy", an animated character who accompanies the tour with explanations and information about the instruments and liturgical and other songs from the various Diasporas. Grandpa Levy will take you on a journey full of experiences across the seven main Diasporas that were milestones in the creation of this musical tradition. Each Diaspora enjoys its own space, impressively and unusually designed that exactly complements the tour.

There are many stringed instruments. You can hear what they sound like. It shows that the proprietors love music and went to great lengths and expense. But take time to use the dispensible mouth pieces to try out the shofars etc. Also, the virtual reality...More

As others have said, this is a collection of instruments, many of them exotic. Many of them don’t seem to have any connection to Jewish music (one is from Vietnam, one is labeled as a Bedouin instrument) or if there is a connection, it was...More

This is one of the most unique and special places to visit. It can be done in about an hour and really should be seen by anyone who likes music.

The exhibits are of the musical instruments that Jewish people have taken with them throughout, and/or adopted during the diaspora BUT the most compelling aspect of this museum is that you can hear ALL of the instruments being played in the historic context of hebrew...More

Lots of impressive technology, with iPad curation, virtual reality temple simulation and gimmicky games. However, it was difficult to navigate your way around and there was no explanation of the history or significance of Jewish music over time. It was also depressing that women had...More
