Formerly the Beit Hatfutsot Museum, this impressive museum was revamped and rebranded in 2021 to place itself in the center of some of the most intriguing and controversial questions to face the Jewish people in Israel and in the diaspora. Over three floors of original artwork, interactive digital displays and historical artifacts, this museum looks at the fate of the Jewish people from the time they left the Holy Land some 2,500 years ago until their return after World War II, and as it struggles, in the world in which a Jewish state does exist, to continue to grapple with its own, numerous identity crises. A recent $100 million renovation tripled the museum in size, and added a number of fascinating artifacts, including the guitar Leonard Cohen played at his final concert in Israel in 2009, a lace collar worn by U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and a 15th century Book of Esther scroll from pre-Inquisition Spain. Eleven of the replicas of ancient synagogues remain from the previous museum, but “ANU” — or “us,” in Hebrew — also includes exhibits on cuisine, music, and culture that testify to the vastly global, and even “non-religious” characteristics that make up the Jewish experience. Visitors can access searchable digital databases of Jewish genealogy, family history, music and photos. The museum is located on the campus of Tel Aviv University in Ramat Aviv and is easily reached by public transportation, taxi or car.
