Site-seeing crowds overwhelmed at least four heritage sites this Yom Ha’Atzma’ut (Independence Day), prompting officials to close their doors temporarily.
The public is asked to first confirm reservations for entry to the following sites due to overcrowding:
Bank of Israel Museum, Jerusalem Menachem Begin Heritage Center, Jerusalem Ayalon Institute, Rehovot Illegal Immigrants’ Camp, Atlit
There are numerous other heritage sites throughout the country, and all are open to the public as usual.
