For Pesach 2017 / 5777 there are a few different initiatives to bring free culture and entertainment to the public. This is really great news, as we know that many of us feel stressed by the regular expenses of the holiday, without even beginning to think about entertainment!
These free sites are sponsored by the Ministry of Cultute and Sport, and the Council for the Conservation of Heritage Sites.
On Chol Hamoed, April 12 and 13, 2017, twelve historic sites will be open to the public, for free, and will offer various activities and presentations. Most of the sites will be open from 10am - 4pm.
I have done my best to translate the information that appears online in Hebrew, and find websites in English for the museums whenever possible. I put significant energy and time into doing this, and I ask that when sharing the information I have written here, please do so by linking back to this page. Thank you in advance.
The FREE sites are:
Yad Mordechai Museum
The Train Yard (Engine 70414) in Be'er Sheva
The Museum of Italian Jewish Art
Ben Gurion House in Tel Aviv
The Gush Katif Visitors' Center in Nitzan
The Rishon L'Tzion Museum
The Kfar Etzion Visitors' Center
The Glass Factory Museum in Kibbutz Nachsholim
The Etzel Museum at Shuni
Sorry I could not find a website for these:
The Founders Museum in Maalot 04-957425
Zinati House in Pekiin 050-7713357
I'll be posting more information about free and discount entertainment on Pesach in the coming days, so be sure to follow me on facebook or sign up to get email updates (link on the right hand side of this page) from this website.
