Sammy Ofer School of Communications
The Communications Museum

The top floor of the Communications Buidling was designated by the founders of the School of Communications as a home to the first communications museum in Israel and consists of 150 communications devices and photographs from the early years of broadcasting and print to the present day.

Featured in the Collection

  • The first transmitter, built by Marconi, the inventor of radio (an identical transmitter was installed on the Titanic)
  • The first storage battery from the beginning of the 19th century
  • The first military radio that broadcasted Morse code used in WWI
  • Radio sets from the period of the founding of the State of Israel
  • One of the first radio transmitters, used by the Jewish underground ("Lechi") before the founding of the Jewish State

Plans for the Future

  • Enlarge and improve gallery collection to serve the museum's many visitors from Israel and around the world
  • Develop a virtual museum on the Internet that will display photographs and information on items in the collection along with video enhancement and rare documents

The VIP Gallery

A unique and intimate meeting venue for lecturers and students in the center of the museum, the VIP Gallery is an ideal environment for special events with the highest attention to atmosphere, comfort, and utility and serves also as an important setting for academic programming and collaborative initiatives with local and international industry players for the purpose of addressing "real world" issues.
Aa a gallery of activity, it reflects the school's mission to serve as a forum for both theoretical and practical knowledge, influence the public agenda, and contribute to Israeli society.
