  • Archives of the Zionist movement, since the 19th Century,as well as the land of Israel,Very good professional service, many of the documents are digitalized, some open exhibits  more »
  • If you want to touch history, to see the original document, to explore a topic in the history of the Central Zionist archive is the place. There are original documents from the beginning of Zionism. Open the archive came from 8:00 to 15:00. Documents are not scanned in certain hours, in 9:00 and in the 13:30. Before coming for the first time need to arrange training.
