Highlights of the Diaspora Museum in the Holy Land


One of the most exciting opportunities afforded by this museum is that visitors may explore their own family history during an in-depth, guided educational tour. A digital database enables anyone to search a family tree, name origin or history of a former Jewish community.


The Diaspora Museum is one of the largest museums in the world specializing in the history of the Jewish people. This Museum displays include photographs, documents, replicas of artifacts, films, music, maps and scale models that tell the story of Jewish communities the time the tribes of Israel were exiled. The displays show life in synagogues, households, and workshops of Jews living around the world.


Also at the museum is an archival film collection of Jewish communities throughout the world and a vast collection of Jewish music.
