Overview

The Museum has on display collections of original ancient instruments and proposes a fascinating tour that incorporates unique interactive content using hi-tech. Here you can experience the creation of this tradition in an exciting tour guided by "Grandpa Levy", an animated character who accompanies the tour with explanations and information about the instruments and liturgical and other songs from the various Diasporas. Grandpa Levy will take you on a journey full of experiences across the seven main Diasporas that were milestones in the creation of this musical tradition. Each Diaspora enjoys its own space, impressively and unusually designed that exactly complements the tour.

So here is an interesting place to visit that was on our list for a while- and we did it in the days before the Passover holiday. It was OK- but other than identifying the instrument and where it is from, no information is provided,...More
