Rockefeller Archeological Museum Reviews
Perfect for a Rainy Day in Jerusalem, today was a wet rainy cold Shabbat day so we opted to go to the museum. It is free admission and a beautiful gift to the City of Jerusalem. more »
Went there during an exhinition for 100 years of Jerusalem Armenian ceramics. Highly recommended. It was free of charge on a Saturday morning with rather only few visitors. more »
