You probably have questions about getting to the museum, where to meet, prices and other questions. 

Since the beginning of the war, the Israel Museum has changed its hours, and has temporarily closed the Shrine of the Book. This means that groups now enter at the regular desk. But I'm still paying a discounted rate on your admission for you, and that is included in the ticket. Museum members - if you want to coordinate with me before coming and pay separately, so you do not pay admission, please contact me in advance! Otherwise I have to pay admission to the museum.

You are eligible for 10% off your entire order with 5 or more participants per order. To get the coupon code, contact me before you place your order. Then use the coupon at checkout.   

We are registered as a group with a special discounted rate through the museum, and that admission is included in your ticket, so you only pay once.  Normally groups meet at the entrance to the Model of Jerusalem, but due to the circumstances we will be meeting at the main entrance. 


This tour is approximately 2 hours in the Israel Museum's Archaeology Wing on the main exhibition floor (flight above the main entrance).
