One of Israel's most impressive and inclusive museums is Beit Hatefutsoth, or the Museum of the Jewish People. Housed in a collection of buildings on Tel Aviv University Campus, the Museum traces the history of Jewish diaspora over a span of 2,500 years. Visitors will want to give themselves a few hours to get through all the material, which includes photographs, films, a music center, miniature reconstructions of ancient buildings, a children's museum and a database where those with Jewish heritage can search for their origins. Admission is 40NIS for adults, 30 for children.
