The Israel Museum is our national repository of artworks and artifacts from across the centuries and, indeed, millennia. However, in recent years, it has increasingly opened up its walls and spaces to artistic pursuits of a more sonic nature.The Jerusalem International Jazz Festival, for example, has been happily and successfully ensconced there for the past two years and there have been musical events of a more classical nature held in various indoor galleries and outdoor spots around the museum grounds.
