Guided Tours

Weekly Tour for the General Public

Every Wednesday, we invite you to join a guided tour for the general public, at no extra cost for ticket holders.

During the tour, we’ll get to know the architectural wonder that is the new National Library building, we will explore the impressive new reading halls and survey a selection of the five million items stored in the Library: rare books, antique manuscripts, photo albums, unique maps, historical posters, personal archives, and more. We will follow in the footsteps of words that shaped our lives, observe the beauty of artistic writings in the rotating exhibit, and discover striking works of art that are spread throughout the building and the beautiful surrounding gardens, among them the “Letters of Light” created by sculptor Micha Ullman.

Come and get to know the place that is home to Israel's great cultural treasures, and perhaps even discover your own story.

Tour duration: about an hour and a half.
