The Israel Museum is the largest cultural institution in the State of Israel. It was founded in 1965 and since then has built a far-ranging collection of nearly 500,000 objects including works dating from prehistory to the present day, in its Archaeology, Fine Arts, and Jewish Art and Life Wings, and features the most extensive holdings of biblical and Holy Land archaeology in the world. The Museum's Shrine of the Book houses the Dead Sea Scrolls, the oldest biblical manuscripts in the world, as well as rare early medieval biblical manuscripts. Adjacent to the Shrine is the Model of Jerusalem in the Second Temple Period.

In the summer of 2010, the Israel Museum completed the most comprehensive upgrade of its 20-acre campus in its history, featuring new galleries, entrance facilities, and public spaces.

The Museum’s garden displays works by modern masters including Jacques Lipchitz, Henry Moore, Claes Oldenburg, Pablo Picasso, Auguste Rodin, David Smith, Magdalena Abakanowicz, Mark Dion, James Turrell, and Micha Ullman.

The Israel Museum also operates two off-site locations: the Rockefeller Archaeological Museum, displaying archaeology from ancient Israel, and Ticho House, which offers an ongoing program of exhibitions by younger Israeli artists.
