Steinhardt Museum: Sharing Nature’s Treasures

The Steinhardt Museum of Natural History, Israel National Center for Biodiversity Studies, opened on the TAU campus in the summer of 2018. Since then, more than 115,000 visitors have already enjoyed the Museum. The number of yearly visitors is projected at more than 300,000, both from Israel and abroad. A priceless national treasure, the Museum holds 5 million animal and plant specimens that tell the Middle East region's story from prehistory until today.  In doing so, it communicates the beauty, complexity and importance of nature to the public, while advancing critical zoological, anthropological, agricultural, ecological and conservational research.


Now fully operational, the Museum contains cutting-edge research labs as well as compelling educational exhibits. Among the many facilities available for naming is the Ark, a suspended wooden structure spanning over 2/3 of the Museum, which houses research facilities that are partially accessible to the public via special viewing windows.


Champions of the environment are fitting partners for this monumental national venture that promotes the management and conservation of ecosystems in Israel and the world.
