  • Amazing view. Occasional temporary exhibitions-I always buy a book there. The most impressive are the old jewels – how they felt the beauty in ancient times, and how they knew how to produce amazing things. Breathtaking beauty. Visiting a lot and recommends everyone!

  • A tangible and enlightening reflection of the history of our ancient region. We went out with a feeling that we had learned and expanded horizons. The museum is convenient for orientation, and the museum store is definitely worth a visit to the people close to your heart. It is possible to combine with a visit to a very nearby Israel museum. Highly recommended.

  • Great place to visit whilst in Jerusalem very interesting exhibits and a stone throw from the national museum so hard to miss. Well worth a visit and the staff are great.
  • Way better than I expected. The history if seals and how they were used by people was fascinating. Way more exhibits than I thought. Wish we had more time here
