Hebrew University of Jerusalem announces plans for Einstein Museum

The planning of an Einstein Museum was announced by the Canadian Friends of the Hebrew University at a dinner hosted in Toronto Wednesday evening. The museum, along with three other Einstein-related initiatives, are in celebration of the centennial of Einstein’s theory of relativity.

The Einstein Museum will be the first institution dedicated to continuing the legacy of Albert Einstein, who co-founded the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and bequeathed to the university his entire estate.

In addition to the museum, designer Ron Arad has been commissioned to create the world’s first 3D printed book, featuring essays from leading opinion formers, Cosmic Pictures will produce an IMAX 3D film exploring the origins and meaning of Einstein’s ideas, and the third annual "The Next Einstein" competition will soon get underway.
