Lod Mosaic center
The Lod mosaic is one of the most impressive and complete mosaics ever discovered anywhere in the world.
In 1996, a rare and impressive mosaic was surprisingly discovered in the city of Lod. The mosaic was discovered during an excavation aimed at rescuing archeological finds before the expansion of a street in the city.
The mosaic has been dated to the Roman period, sometime in the late 3rd to early 4th century CE.
Since its discovery, the mosaic has been displayed in important museums and cultural centers in Israel and around the world, including: the Metropolitan in New York, the Louvre in Paris, the Altes Museum in Berlin and the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg.
The new visitor center provides a modern entrance to the city and will connect visitors with a tourism circuit in Lod with impressive historical sites currently undergoing preservation and restoration.
The Lod Mosaic Center is located in the North Eastern part of Lod, near the Ginaton Junction.
It can be easily approached from the Ben-Gurion International airport and from the two main highways – road no. 1 and road no. 6.
