Eretz Israel Museum, Tel Aviv

Museum garden. The museum has many buildings surrounded by gardens. Most buildings display a single type of work: glass, ceramics, copper and other metals, philately, numismatics. The glass pavillion today had a large and very attractive exhibit of Murano glass from 1920-2005.

Oil Press: the museum has many displays of ancient practical arts and technologies. They frequently have demonstrations, but none were going on today.

Ancient pottery vessels arranged to show how they were used. Note how the juglets functioned to remove the material from large storage jars.
