Visitors Center

Due to renovations, the Bank of Israel Visitor's Center will be moved to a temporary location at the Bank of Israel's Tel Aviv office, 37 Lilienblum street, at the corner of Nahalat Binyamin, and will begin operating there within the next few months.
An announcement regarding the resumption of operations at the new location will be made closer to the date.
Until then, it will not be possible to visit the Visitor's Center.  To coordinate lectures, presentations and videos presented by the Visitor's Center staff at your location, please contact the Visitor's Center staff.

Purpose of the Center
  • To familiarize the public with the Bank's main functions and its contribution to Israel's economy; 
  • To present the historical development of money in Israel and the reflection of the nation's and the State's heritage in the design of banknotes and coins. 


A visit to the Center is instructive and interesting, and incorporates: 

  • An exhibition of ancient coins, banknotes and coins issued from pre-State days to the present; 
  • Interactive activity stations which explain, by means of computer games, the functions of the Bank of Israel, the history of money, and the contribution of the central bank to the economy; 
  • Films on the development of the means of payment and the essential role of the Bank–the preservation of price stability.
