Israel’s first Medicine and Science museum opens its doors

Technoda, Israel’s first-ever medicine and science museum, announced on Tuesday that it had opened to the public.

Located in Hadera, the museum is one of the biggest in the world, spanning over 1,200 square meters and containing 120 exhibits.

The museum is themed “Diving into the Human Body” and has unique exhibits which teach visitors about anatomy, physiology, diagnosis and pathology, treatment and advanced technologies.

The teaching is done through sophisticated interactive tools that encourage learning through experience over a wide range of ages.

This unique approach spans over six international exhibitions about the human body: Heart, Lungs, Brain, Bacteria and Viruses, Genetics and Did You Know?

The exhibits include large 3D models of a heart that the visitor can enter, a brain and the world’s largest model of a DNA double helix.

“We’ve seen it all around the world: countries that prioritize public discourse about medicine significantly impact the health of their citizens, while countries that don’t suffer many failures in this area,” said Technoda CEO Dr. Gadi Mador.

“As we considered our next challenge for the children of Israel, we decided to strengthen the medical world of the future by inspiring future generations of medical leaders. We are thrilled to launch the world’s first medicine and science museum, dedicated entirely to medicine and containing dozens of exhibits about the health of the human body.

“We hope the museum will become a household name around the world and a pilgrimage site for tourists when they are able to visit.”

The museum joins Technoda’s other scientific complexes, including an observatory that houses Israel’s largest telescope, a planetarium, a medical simulation unit and a science park.
