The Barbro and Bernard Osher Center for Housing and Display of the Complete Collection of Dead Sea Scrolls

The Barbro and Bernard Osher Center for Housing and Display of the Complete Collection of Dead Sea ScrollsThe Barbro and Bernard Osher Center for Housing and Display of the Complete Collection of Dead Sea Scrolls will be the only venue to provide the safe, environmentally controlled special housing for more than 15,000 Dead Sea Scrolls – the largest and most complete collection of Dead Sea Scrolls in the world. One of the features of the center is its climate-control system providing conditions of humidity, temperature, light, and darkness similar to the Scrolls’ original home in the Judean Desert caves, maintaining the averages of humidity and temperature that had preserved the Scrolls for 2,000 years. Located along the main visitor’s pass on floor 8, the floor devoted to Israel’s National Treasures, the center will have a large display window and a display area for specialized changing exhibits, and will become a destination for learning and research of these 2,000 year old manuscripts.
