Jerusalem is a city of museums. In the past, archeological findings discovered in Jerusalem would be displayed in small exhibition halls primarily in the Old City’s churches and monasteries. This practice changed in 1938, when the Rockefeller Archeological Museum was built outside of the Old City walls. Later, after the State of Israel was established, cultural institutions opened throughout the city, including the Israel Museum in 1965, the Museum for Islamic Art in 1974, and the Bible Lands Museum and the Science Museum in 1992. Throughout these years, museums were also opened in existing buildings, including the Tower of David Museum, the Natural History Museum, and the Old Yishuv Court Museum.

In the near future, Jerusalem is expected to see additional museum openings in the new “Museum Complex” surrounding the Israel Museum, where the National Campus for the Archeology of Israel and the National Library are slated to open in the coming years.
