  • Small but fascinating museum. Of limited interest to young kids, but a great and compact learning experience for curious adults.

  • One of the best museums I ever visited. It is not big,but enough. A lot of exhibits from countries mentioned in the Bible.They have guided tours (info available on their website). The NEW gallery "On the rivers of Babilon" which shows Jewish clay tablets first time ever is breathtaking. It is included in the tour. The museum will be of interest to those who enjoys history.
  • Really nice museum with a simple theme - take you through all the lands of the bible in chronological order in an attempt to understand the world where the bible takes place.
  • Great exhibitions incredibly rare findings. A must visit museum
