Science Museums in Israel – Overview, Best and Recommendations


At Bloomfield Science Museum Jerusalem

In this review, we will go over the most popular science museums in Israel. Then make a comparison and give recommendations. Let’s begin!

Science Museums in Israel

Before going over science museums, I wanted to make a short preface. Science museums in Israel usually concentrate on hands-on experiences. In these museums, children interact by playing with most stands. Thus children love visiting these museums. And since they are aimed towards children, after going over the most popular science museums we will review the best museums for kids and other honorable mentions.

Comparison of Science Museums

Though there are many museums in Israel, as it comes to science museums, there are three big places and several smaller ones. And in the following table, I will list the biggest ones first.

Note: I revisited all the big science museums during the last year and a half. And you can click on the museum’s name to read more about it.

So which one should you choose? Since we loved all of them, and as you can see, the rating is rather similar, you can not go wrong with any of them. Thus the easiest selection method would be going to the closest one.

You can also choose the science museum depending on the age of your kids. A smaller museum with a garden will suits toddlers and preschoolers (you probably will not visit the exhibitions anyway). And in case you have older kids (let’s say older than seven), then you can head to the bigger ones (the first three in the table).

Museums for Children

And now let’s go over other museums in Israel that children love.

Other Activities With Kids

If you are looking for an activity with your kids then beyond museums there are several other good options.

Other Popular Museums

In this section, I will mention other popular museums. Museums that are not specifically aimed towards children, but with the right approach will be suitable for a whole family visit.

  • Israel Museum In Jerusalem is the biggest museum in the country. There are many different exhibitions and everybody can find something for their likings.
  • Tel Aviv Museum of Art suits families that love painting, photography and other forms of art.
  • Tikotin Museum Of Japanese Art is the only museum in Israel that is dedicated to this topic.
  • Design Museum Holon is dedicated to designing and some exhibitions are suitable for kids.
  • The Museum For Islamic Art contains many beautiful items (like their watches collection) and has workshops for kids.
  • The Tower Of David museum presents the history of Jerusalem. And beyond the exhibits, you can go for a night show.
  • Ticho House can be a lovely place for a short visit.
