New temporary exhibition at the Museum for Islamic Art - Jerusalem

Everything you wanted to ask about the Museum for Islamic Art, but never got a chance…

A cultural institution deeply rooted in Jerusalem:
The museum (founded in 1972) is right next door to the President’s residence and the Jerusalem Theater.
The building was designed to harmonize with the beautiful architecture of Jerusalem’s Talbieh neighborhood.

New content:
The permanent Islamic Art collection includes outstanding and rare artifacts, some over 1,000 years old. But that’s not all.
There are exhibitions of contemporary art; and cultural events in which East meets West, different people and traditions find a common language, and past and present mix.

Museum on the move:
The Museum for Islamic Art is constantly growing. The last few years have seen a serious increase in the number of daytime visitors, of evening events, and of the wealth of activities the museum offers.

Social events:
Alongside the exhibition halls, the museum has areas for gatherings of up to 150 guests, on the spacious outdoor balcony, or in an indoor hall used for performances, lectures, and other activities.

A new temporary exhibition:
DOR GUEZ The Sick Man Of Europe :The Composer
Modern Times Exhibition By timepiece-maker-artist Itay Noy.

The most famous permanent exhibition in the world:
The Watch & Clock collection, one of the most important in the world, is devoted to the genius behind the measurement of time.
Of the 200 or so timepieces, 55 were made by the famous Parisian watchmaker, Abraham-Louis Breguet two centuries ago.
