Great for all ages. The new museum has seven halls in a total of 1400 square meters/14,000 square feet
The museum is the brainchild of Rabbi Slifkin. His knowledge of the animal kingdom and how it connects to stories in the Bible is unsurpassed and now he has found a way to share it with kids, teens and adults at the new Biblical Museum of Natural History.
The live online 50-minute program is perfect for people who are unable to physically visit, and an ideal solution for the Coronavirus lockdown. All you need is an internet connection! We will give you interactive tours of museum exhibits, during which you will be able to ask questions. It’s the next best thing to actually visiting!
