About the Event

This tour is independant of the museum. Museum admission is still required, in addition to the RSVP. The Israel Museum is not responsible for any aspect of this tour, and will not recognize your registration here towards the admission. Thank you!

The Israel Museum holds the “crown jewels” of Israel’s archaeology: The Dead Sea Scrolls, monuments built by our ancient kings, and lots of ancient coins.  The inspiration for many of the Bank of Israel’s coin and banknote designs are to be found within this national treasure. But there is much more to the design than their connection to historic artifacts.  We’ll follow the story behind the artifacts, what they mean and why they were chosen as designs. We’ll explore the history of money and currency thousands of years ago, and learn about propaganda and forgeries, politics and philosophy.  

THIS TOUR IS IN ENGLISH

This tour is ~75 min in the Israel Museum. It is also available as a 90-120 min tour for adults.
