Did you know, with more than 200 museums, Israel is said to be one of the countries with the highest number of museums per capita?

If that doesn’t pique your interest, this might. Israel was also the first to open an underwater museum, The Underwater Archeological Park at Caesarea Harbor. It offers an underwater experience for both amateurs and skilled divers. You will find yourself swimming amongst ruins of times long past. So if you are feeling adventurous, make sure to pencil this into your itinerary.

You may be an art major or a history buff, love science and enjoy hands-on experiences, or find yourself on a faith journey or pilgrimage. No matter where your interests lie, you are guaranteed to find something to enjoy.

If a trip to Israel is in your future, consider adding some visits to museums to your itinerary. All of these showcase humankind’s extraordinary creativity and ingenuity, both from years past and modern times. Set some time aside to enjoy beautiful works of art, both old and new. Study the different styles of craftmanship and observe the influence previous generations have had on contemporary art and the current culture. In addition, you will have the opportunity to delve into the area’s history and may even find yourself in a moment of reflection and introspection.
