Programs and Activities

Fridays in Focus

   (Program in Hebrew) 


Once a month, on Fridays, before noon, a Museum staff member will guide a group through a unique, personal tour on a topic close to their heart.
This is a wonderful opportunity  to experience the museum from a different perspective, explore the main galleries and gain a little insight into the past, present and future, as well as get to know a different member of the museum.
it's going to be interesting, personal and a little bit different...

August 2 | Were the Ancients Astronomers? Dr. Edith Kimchi, Director of Education
What’s the connection between the Milky Way and the Egyptian Goddess Nut? Between the lotus flower and the solar system? Between Orion and the Pyramids? And can we find a parallel in the ancient world to...surfing the internet? Let’s wonder together...
