First Medicine & Science Museum, one of the largest in the world, has opened In Givat Olga neighborhood of Hadera.
The museum at Technoda, integrates science, medicine, and technology. It extends over 1,200 square meters and contains around 120 exhibits under the theme “Diving Into the Human Body,” an insight into the human body’s structure and function.
The museum emphasizes anatomy, physiology, pathology, and diagnostics, as well as therapeutic approaches and innovative technologies. Visitors can go deeper into these subjects through the use of sophisticated, interactive visual tools that encourage experimentation and in-depth, experiential learning across a broad variety of ages and demographics.
The museum features six international exhibitions devoted to the systems that are critical to the development and function of the human body: the Heart, Lungs, Brain, Bacteria and Viruses, Genetics, and Did You Know? While visiting the museum, children can experiment and engage in a powerful, interactive sensory experience.
They can enter a massive heart for an incredible audiovisual experience; interact with a massive model brain; see the virus and bacteria display (which features COVID-19 too); or walk up and down the world’s largest DNA double helix.
The museum’s exhibitions provide visitors with new insights into the human body and its function, both in health and disease, while also delivering a strong message about the need of living a healthy lifestyle.
The museum will educate visitors about the difficulties and dilemmas of medicine, as well as the satisfaction of saving lives, while also highlighting recent medical advancements and remarkable Israeli technological and scientific achievements.
Technoda CEO Dr. Gadi Mador says “We’ve seen it all around the world: countries that prioritize public discourse about medicine significantly impact the health of their citizens. This was especially evident during the global coronavirus crisis; countries with strong, efficient healthcare systems handled the pandemic more successfully. We hope the museum will become a household name around the world and a pilgrimage site for tourists when they are able to visit.”
