Free Museum Admission May 19, 2014
This year May 19th (2014) - which seems to be a day off of school for many of the kids in this country - is International Museum Day, and there are 70 museums around Israel open to the public for free!

Many museums on this list are usually quite pricey for a family to visit, but i will warn you now - get there early or risk having the doors closed due to overcrowding.
