The Steinhardt Museum of Natural History

The Steinhardt Museum of Natural History is in north Tel Aviv on the campus of the Tel Aviv University. There are literally thousands of exhibits on display at any one time. It is appreciated by the museum that it is impossible to view all the exhibits at one visit and that one has to be selective. The exhibits are arranged according to topic. You can go on a tour to appreciate the range offered, you can look at their website and choose displays that are either recommended, of interest to you, or both. You can also speak to the people at the desk for recommendations.


Some examples: The entire third floor covers “What makes us human” and is about the origin of humans and their anatomical and physiological evolution. There are also exhibits on studying past climates so as to prepare for the future. All their videos have subtitles in Hebrew, English and Arabic.
