Jewish Diaspora Museum
The Nahum Goldmann Museum of the Jewish Diaspora is an incredible showcase of the Jewish experience from the Destruction of the First Temple, over two millennia ago, up until the present day. The museum relays the information in an interactive, audio-visual way making it a perfect family day out.
The museum uses six themes to explore the Jewish experience; family, community, faith, culture, the Jewish people among the nations and the return to the land of Israel. Artifacts have no place in this museum; rather, models, dioramas, films and presentations are the means used to tell the Jewish story of the exile.
attractions that deserve a special mention are the Fehrer Jewish Music Centre, where one can listen to Jewish music in all it’s variations from all over the world, the Douglas E Goldman Jewish Genealogy Centre where one can register one’s family tree to be preserved for future generations and the Visual Documentation Centre, that holds the largest photo-documentation of Jewish life in the world.
One may tour independently, join a seminar or even ask for one’s family genealogy to be researched. One may as well take advantage of being on the Tel aviv University grounds and take a stroll around campus too. It is possible pick up something light to eat at the café in the student centre.
address: Tel Aviv University campus, Ramat Aviv, Tel Aviv
Open Hours: : Sun-Thu: 10am-7pm, Fri: 9am-2pm, Closed on Saturday and Jewish Holidays.

Hello reader. My name is Charlotte Noris and I am sure that you will definitely enjoy my blog. Do you know why? All because on the pages you will see bright and colorful photos, as well as useful information. My husband and I are freelancers, so we can travel at any time of the year.
For myself, I most often plan tours in advance, but it also happens that the trip turns out to be spontaneous when I see an interesting place and a nice price. At the age of 35, I have visited more than 30 countries and do not plan to stop there. I want to visit all continents and the most secret corners of our planet.
