Tel Aviv’s Museum of the Jewish People (Beit Hatfutsot) tells the ongoing 4,000-year story of the Jewish people from the past into the future. The permanent collection includes exhibits on trailblazers and heroes of Jewish history, Israel’s War of Independence and the past and present of synagogues.
At the heart of it all is the Core Exhibition — a story through the eras of Jewish life and history through a collection of dioramas, murals, models, film and multi-media displays on topics like family life, community, martyrdom, faith, culture and the interaction between the Jewish people and their host environments throughout the world.
As of 2016 the museum is undergoing a comprehensive renovation, which will culminate in a new 66,000-square-foot permanent exhibit in 2019 — this reinvented space will place greater emphasis on narrative, identity and participation.
The BH Museum App includes a free audio guide with pictures, videos and commentaries on the exhibits.
