All the activities at the Agam Museum will be held in accordance with the Purple Character Regulations. The museum covers an area of ​​approximately 3,200 square meters, and is a safe space for visitors to the general public to visit.

The museum displays dozens of spectacular works by the artist Yaakov Agam, kinetic works of art and sculpture in motion. The museum provides visitors with a multi-sensory experience in an environment wrapped in a variety of colors, stimuli and movement. Yaakov Agam's art fascinates viewers of all ages and especially children who explore and discover the world with all their senses. Viewers are surrounded by a mesmerizing visual symphony, in which each step and each look reveal new and changing motifs in the space, creating an inspiring environment.

In honor of Purim - the rare work 'The Book of Esther', created by Yaakov Agam in 1980, will be displayed in the museum.

The scroll has not been exposed to the general public for nearly four decades and its value is now estimated at over 100,000 NIS. It is an exquisite kosher scroll created from silk on parchment and written in ink by a Jewish scribe 'Sofer Stam'. The scroll is written in Kiddush letters decorated with kinetic works, and presents the 'Book of Esther', surrounded by revolving 'Trees of Life'. Its abstract paintings are inspired by the characters in the story of the scroll: Ahasuerus, Ruth, Mordechai the Jew and more.
