The Steinhardt Museum of Natural History at Tel Aviv University will soon open its doors to the public.
The new building (9,620 sq m) will house Israel’s national natural history collections, including five and a half million animals and plants that tell the story of biodiversity in Israel and the Middle East during the past century. Thousands of items from the collection will be on display in the museum’s galleries, which cover over 1,700 sq m. The museum's seven exhibitions were created by scientific curators and an experience designer, together with leading exhibition designers.
The Museum team discovers, collects and catalogues millions of items that document the biodiversity of the region and document the development and history of humans and their environment.
