Einstein archives to open to public

The Albert Einstein Archives is currently housed in a handful of second-floor offices on the Jerusalem campus of Hebrew University, a school Einstein helped establish. In 2017, the archivists announced that they'll be getting their own dedicated building – and it will be open to the public. The archives will move into a two-story planetarium where it will house Einstein's personal library, an exhibition space and a visitor's center. And strangely, one of the people behind the project is the co-creator of the "Power Rangers." The new building will be called the Einstein House, as the term "museum" was never a favorite of the genius.
