The Israel Museum, the largest cultural institution in Israel, houses encyclopedic collections of works dating from prehistory to the present day in Archaeology, the Fine Arts, and Jewish Art and Life. Since opening in 1965, the Museum has built a collection of nearly 500,000 objects representing the full scope of artistic creativity and world material culture. The galleries at the top of the campus contain permanent displays from the collections as well as temporary exhibitions. In addition, the Museum offers its local and international visitors a dynamic Youth Wing, a serene Art Garden, and the Shrine of the Book, home to the 2,000-year-old Dead Sea Scrolls. In the summer of 2010, the Museum completed a comprehensive upgrade of its 20-acre campus, adding new galleries, facilities, and public spaces and transforming its three collection wings. Preserving the spirit of the original design by Alfred Mansfeld and Dora Gad, the renewal led by James Carpenter Design Associates of New York and Efrat-Kowalsky Architects of Tel Aviv is designed to enhance visitor experience of the Museumâ€™s unique collections, architecture, and setting.
