Veiled Women of the Holy Land – the phenomenon of Jewish and Muslim women covering their bodies to express religious piety and strict modesty has spread greatly in recent decades. This exhibition presents 13 sets of clothing of the various groups, accompanied by texts and photographs, dealing with the symbolic meanings of the modest clothes. In the film by director Ari Teperberg, women from the three religions shed light on their world view and the dress that is an inseparable part of it.

Peter and Pan: from Ancient Greece to Neverland – This exhibition deals with the reincarnation of the God Pan, the peaceful and pastoral nature God, and the character of Peter Pan, the eternal child who refuses to grow and mature from James Barry's immortal work. The story of the two, in light of the times in which their characters "lived", is told with archeological artifacts such as ancient statues, reliefs and murals, along with early editions of Peter Pan's books, movies and fairy tales.
