Founded in 1965, Israel Museum, Jerusalem, is Israel’s national museum and largest cultural institution. Dating from prehistory to present day, the collection of over 500,000 pieces of art and Holy Land antiquities is one of the finest and most comprehensive collections in the world. The Dead Sea Scrolls and artifacts discovered at Masada are housed in the Shrine of the Book, an iconic structure designed to resemble the lids of the jars in which the scrolls were found. The collections are organized into three wings, Archeology, Jewish Art and Life, and Fine Arts. On view are works by Henry Moore, Pablo Picasso, David Smith, Claes Oldenburg, Auguste Rodin, Vincent Van Gogh, among many others.
