  • Historically significant and informative exhibit, however we were disappointed by how few pages of the actual scrolls were on display. We were expecting reams but only saw a few pages. So just manage your expectations. The rest of the museum is very impressive so altogether it's worth a visit.
  • It houses some incredible testimonials from Jewish history and origin. The scrolls found in this shrine cannot be found anywhere else in the world. The presentation is very impressive, and although it hasn't changed in a while you can always find new and exciting ways to look at it. Unfortunately it isn't really wheelchair accessible.
