Steinhardt Museum: Sharing Nature’s Treasures

The Steinhardt Museum of Natural History, Israel National Center for Biodiversity Studies, will open on the TAU campus in 2018. The Museum will be a priceless national treasure with 5 million animal and plant specimens that tell the Middle East region’s story from prehistory until today. It will communicate the beauty, complexity and importance of nature to the public, while advancing critical zoological, anthropological, agricultural, ecological and conservational research.


Anticipated to serve 200,000 visitors every year from Israel and abroad, the Museum will contain cutting-edge research labs as well as compelling educational exhibits. Among the many facilities available for naming at the Museum is the Ark, a suspended wooden structure spanning over 2/3 of the Museum, which will house research facilities that are partially accessible to the public.


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