The Israel Museum has been closed to the public while undergoing a complete renovation. We have noted this with construction photos here.
The museum is once again open. Here are links to a couple of reports about the refurbished museum.
The already impressive location of the Museum campus with the Shrine of the Book, the Second Temple Model and the nearby Israeli Knesset building is sure to be even more impressive. I anticipate my next visit.
The Shrine of the Book and the Second Temple Model has been open during the museum renovation.
