Journey into the past and discover what we have in common with people who lived thousands of years ago. Featuring archaeological artifacts from the ancient Near East and replicas of pieces from the renowned collections of the Israel Museum and Israel Antiquities Authority, the Discovery Center invites visitors to learn about our shared human history through the study of archaeology.
As you explore the gallery, imagine you are an archaeologist—an explorer, historian, and scientist who studies past cultures and civilizations. Search for clues in the artifacts and features that people made, built, and used thousands of years ago. Exhibits reveal ancient trade routes, burial practices, methods of communication, and more.
