Bloomfield Science Museum is a science museum in Jerusalem, Israel, established in 1992. The museum is located opposite the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in the Givat Ram neighborhood. The museum is named for its principal donor, Neri Bloomfield. The museum is especially child-friendly, with hands-on exhibitions explaining everything from the principles of architecture to how the laws of physics operate at amusement parks. Map.
Guided tours for the whole family will take place in the “Games in Light and Shadow” exhibition. This new exhibition is designed as the Parisian home of Professor Archibald Shadow, a researcher, dreamer and shadows collector.
In the house of the shadows’ collector, visitors discover surprising, exotic and poetic shadows and become researchers themselves. In the exhibition, there will be dozens of active exhibits and works of leading Israeli artists that invite visitors to experience shadows: increase, reproduce, create layers of shadows, allow them to escape or capture them.
At the museum you can find an additional 10 interactive exhibitions for all ages: Waterworks, Illusions, Electricity, Luna Park, Discovering Levers, CAPTCHA, and lots more. All tours, demonstrations, building workshops and activities are all included in the ticket price at no additional charge (except for the live performance) Other exhibitions include Innovation Inc., Waterworks, Illusions, Electricity, Luna Park, Discovering Levers, and lots more.
