Visits to the Biblical Museum of Natural History are through a special guided tour, by appointment only. The museum is designed for adults and older children (7+), but younger children are also welcome, provided that the adults can keep an eye on them—many of our exhibits are accessible to touch and are delicate! There is an eight-person minimum for each tour; if your party numbers less than eight people, we will try to coordinate your visit with another party (during peak period, such as Pesach, Sukkot, Chanukah and summer, there are tours throughout the day). It is also possible to arrange an exclusive tour for your group. Special longer tours, featuring more discussion and hands-on activities, can also be arranged.
To book a tour, please email us at
