Bloomfield Science Museum: Valentine's Day with the Stars

Hi there,

What could be more romantic than watching a starry sky together at night? On the occasion of Valentine's Day, the Bloomfield Science Museum in Jerusalem is inviting the public, FREE of charge to a virtual and interactive exhibition that will enable you to view the celestial bodies, as if you had a telescope in the middle of your living room.

WHEN: Valentine's Day is on Sunday, Feb 14, 2021

The telescope has changed the way we understand space and celestial bodies. As it evolved, so did our understanding of the universe in which we live. Space telescopes help us see smaller and more distant details and even take pictures within types of rays that do not penetrate through the atmosphere.

The exhibition "A Glance at Space" presents photographs of celestial bodies according to their size and different perspectives. Some, images taken by space agency research tools, and other images, taken by people seeking beauty alongside interest.

Alongside the celestial bodies, the exhibition presents milestones in the historical development of exploration and understanding of space as a series of revolutions, from the days of Galileo Galilei to the present day.

The aim of the Bloomfield Museum is to arouse curiosity and deepen understanding of the nature of the world and how things work. The museum presents the principles and essence of science and technology, to as wide an audience as possible.

At the center of the museum are exhibitions of interactive exhibits. The exhibits are accompanied by a wide range of activities that deepen the understanding and expand the experience.

The exhibits and activities are tailored to a wide spectrum of visitors, including unique groups. Explanations are given at different levels and in three languages from early childhood to adulthood.

The museum creates a stimulating learning environment, which acts on the visitor's complex of senses and encourages a positive attitude towards science.

The exhibits are operated by the visitor, making them particularly interesting, fun and instructive. The exhibits encourage cooperation and dialogue between the visitors, and are accompanied by the guidance of instructors.

In addition to exhibitions, the museum holds dramatic scientific demonstrations and performances, hands on experience with experiments and construction, films and lectures, competitions and quizzes, science events, science meetings for school students and teacher training courses on scientific topics and ways to present them. The wide range of activities is scheduled in order to address the needs of different visitors, cover issues that are not displayed in the exhibitions and expand the scope of the museum's impact on visitors.


This month the museum has launched the exhibition in a virtual and interactive version that can be viewed from anywhere and from any device, free of charge HERE.

Happy Valentine's Day!
