The Museum of Natural History, housed in a historic structure from the 19th century in Jerusalem's German Colony neighborhood, is much more than simply a museum.


A natural oasis in the heart of the city, the museum offers visitors a variety of experiential, cultural, educational and fun nature-related activities. The museum also serves as a local neighborhood institution, hosting events that cater to children and adults from all sectors of the population in a warm and homey atmosphere, fusing a taste of the past with contemporary subjects.

The museum features a wide variety of displays from the natural sciences and zoology as well as a display about flying animals, mammals, and crawlers in Israel on dioramas.

Visitors to the museum can enjoy a large, shady sculpture garden, displays and exhibitions, a screening room, a library, an educational live animal corner (groups only), a professional staff, and a community garden.
