Herod the Great Exhibition
Visitors to the Israel Museum February through September can stroll through reconstructed halls of King Herod’s palace and catch a glimpse of the burial chamber of this controversial figure in ancient Israeli history.
Exhibited to the public for the very first time, visitors to this ground-breaking exhibition will have the opportunity to view some of the most recent artifacts and finds from Herod’s palaces in Herodium, Jericho, and other sites that are on display in this exhibition.
Herod the Great was one of Israel’s greatest builders, known for his colossal building projects in Jerusalem and elsewhere, including his expansion of the Second Temple in Jerusalem (sometimes referred to as Herod's Temple). The findings featured in this exhibit shed new light on the political, architectural, and aesthetic influence of Herod’s rule (37–4 BCE).
