how to say “museum” in Hebrew

מוּזֵאוֹן

This Hebrew word is simple enough for English speakers to grasp easily: מוזיאון for museum.

For example:

אני לא יודע איפה המוזיאון, אני לא מקומי.

I (a male) don’t know where the museum is, I’m not a local.

Note the -yon ending. This is a common ending for types of places, especially if the word comes from Greek or Latin and end in -um. Other examples include אצטדיון – stadium and הרודיון Herodium.

After having studied literature and linguistics on the bachelors level and psychology on the masters, Ami decided to draw upon his hobby of learning languages, his understanding of human thought processes and his skill of explaining complex ideas in simple terms, to found a program that enables people to speak Hebrew with confidence.
