You have to take a bus to get there from central Tel Aviv, but it's worth it for its all encompassing exhibits on Jewish history and communities around the world.

We have not visited Beit Hatfutsot since about 25 years ago. The old part smelled old as if it was never ventilated. I am quite sure there are ways to ventilate museums without harming the exhibits. The lighting is poor and causes deep disappointment for...More

This museum was interesting in the fact that it contains a lot of memorabilia of the Jewish people. You could spend a long time here reading and looking at everything but it starts to get boring and monotonous after a while. It's on the campus...More

The models of the synagogues were excellent, but the rest of the museum was a little disjointed. There was an entire room dedicated to Bob Dylan, which seemed out of place if it was a museum covering the all of the Jewish people. Likewise, the...More
