The Museum of the Jewish People at Beit Hatfutsot in Tel Aviv - formerly known as the Diaspora Museum celebrates a diverse, pluralist view of 4,000 years of the Jewish history and culture.  The museum, established in 1978, opened a New Wing in 2016. The highlights of the New Wing include the two permanent galleries:  Synagogue Hall, featuring an updated collection of the renowned synagogue models and spectacular multimedia displays, and Heroes,  a hands-on childrens gallery about Jewish heroes, explored through interactive games, puzzles and art projects. Three rotating exhibitions and the extensive use of artifacts, video, music and media throughout the museum enhance the 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.
