The Israel Museum

The Israel Museum was built in Jerusalem in 1965. Exhibits depicting 5,000 years of Jewish culture and art from around the world are on display here. The museum complex consists of several units. The Shrine of the Book is a pavilion where the most important artifacts are kept, including the Dead Sea Scrolls, the most important of which is the Great Isaiah Scroll. There is also the Archaeological Wing, where the most popular exhibits prove that David was a historical figure, and the Jewish Art & Life Wing, which contains as many as four complete synagogues that were brought and reconstructed from various parts of the world. Fine Arts Wing displays settings that include works by Pissarro, Degas, Sisley, Renoir, Monet, and Cézanne, among others. Finally, there is the Art Garden, which is home to sculptures by Moore, Oldenburg, Serra, Rodin, Kapoor, LeWitt, and Picasso.
