Free Museum Day is May 7th!

International Museum Day is coming up! On May 7, 2015, 70 museums around Israel will be 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.

The list is below (the full list in Hebrew is available here).
*Please note that I put a lot of effort into this post, tracking down websites in English for your convenience. I know this 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.
