Rockefeller Archeological Museum Reviews
I had read an excellent book by Adina Hoffman, about Austen St Barbe Harrison, the architect of the Rockefeller. There is a bus (no 1) almost to the door and then you climb the path to the amazing bui... more »
2019年1月在耶路撒冷遊覽的最後一天下午，從獅子門出城，穿越了一片穆斯林的墓地來到希律門和大馬色門附近的洛克菲勒中心。 其實看上去不像現代博物館，更像是大學或研究機構的倉庫，收藏了大量鄂圖曼晚期的出土文物，尤其是20世紀二三十年代的。很多很多東西，但看不出重點。不像現代博物館可以明顯的看出哪些是精品，也有較為方便的導覽。對於普通的觀光客，英語也不太好，很難找到重點來看。 介於此點本來想給三星，但... more »On the last afternoon of the January 2019 trip to Jerusalem, the mule left the city and crossed a Muslim cemetery to the Rockefeller Center near Herod and Grand Colors. It doesn't look like a museum of the present generation, more like a university or research machine, and houses a large collection of unearthed artifacts from the late Ottoman period, especially in the 20s and 1930s. A lot of things, but i don't see the point. Unlike the current generation of museums can clearly see which are fine, but also for the convenience of the art. For ordinary light guests, English is not very good, very difficult to find a more serious point to look at. In this case to think of Samsung, but back to the data found that the Rockefeller Museum looks unremarkable, but there are also fine parts, such as the Akju Mosque's 8th wooden board, the tomb church 12th (the time of the cross), the marble, now the tomb church can only see the mule, The slate is in the Rockefeller Museum (good for me to take a picture). and a large number of artifacts previously unearthed in Jerusalem, Migindo, Kiyoshi, Raj, Samaria and Jericho. It takes a lot of time to see the light guests who first come to the beginning, and it's probably not unusual to be able to walk and spend a glimpse. People who are not good in England are even more very good at looking at the archaeological site. But the museum itself is very interesting, it is worth the question that there is a free room and water, which is very difficult in Israel!
Excellent museum... lost of things to appreciate from all different periods
