Free attractions and Museums on Pesach 2015!

If you are looking for current information, please check out the updated post for 2016! 

*Please note that I put a lot of effort into this post, tracking down websites in English for your convenience. I know the Bank Hapoalim info is available to the public in Hebrew, but this blog  post has added benefits for the English speaking community. Because it was so much work, I request that if you plan to share this info, you link back to my site. Thank you for this common courtesy.

Bank Hapoalim does this wonderful service for the country:  They sponsor free attractions all around the country for Chol Hamoed, and the country loves it!

Here's the info for this year: The participating attractions will be open to the public for free on April 5-9 and you will need to check with the attractions regarding their individual hours of operation.

Here's the list of free attractions for this year. I have linked to websites in English, whenever possible. I hope you find this list helpful, and that you get to have some super-frugal fun over Pesach!

  1. Been to a few of these, are there any that are specifically suitable for really young kids? Say, under the age of 3 to 4?

    1. I'm really not sure, that would be a good question for a mom's group. (my kids are older than that already)
