The Leon Levy and Shelby White National Center for the State Treasures will occupy 50,000 sq. feet of the Jay and Jeanie Schottenstein National Campus for the Archaeology of the Land of Israel, allowing visitors to see the nearly two million objects in the State Collections for the first time.

With 20,000 - 30,000 excavated objects added each year to the collection, it represents the largest collection of objects excavated in Israel including: Ancient Glass; 120,000 Coins; Pottery and Stone; Metal; Textiles, Ivory, Wood, Basketry; Ossuaries; Jewelry; Architectural fragments, and more. Because these artifacts were discovered in controlled excavations— both on land and underwater— and recorded in archaeological context, the objects contribute to our understanding of the historical and geographical milieu and provide valuable cultural information about the people who used them.
