45 FREE museums, zoos and parks to enjoy this Passover!

Tel Aviv Museum of ArtOK, so if you’re looking for something a little different after soaking up too many rays on the beach (or if you’ve been here way too long and know you’re heading for a traditional, safe BBQ in some ol’ forest), then this could be a game-changer!

Now happening every Passover/Pessach, locals and tourists can enjoy – for FREE – a huge variety of new exhibitions and activities in museums, performing arts festivals and special events throughout the country to add to an already special feeling of celebrating Passover in Israel. Many of the events are equally accessible to tourists as well as locals (but if you’re a tourist you might struggle with the Hebrew here and there – check the links out in the list below).

In all, there are 45 FREE museums, zoos and parks open during the weekdays of Passover 2018 (NOTE: all are still to be officially confirmed). But to ensure entry, and to avoid the heaving crowds, we recommend you get there early!
