  • 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.
  • The "Bible Lands Museum" in Jerusalem is an exhibition of diverse artefacts relating to the Old and New Testament, based on the collection of antiquities dealer and collector Dr. Elie Borowski.
  • Probably the most overlooked museum here. Wonderful experience. Great guide. Amazing museum. Please -- do not miss it!
  • This is a nice museum, but it isn't actually here. It's on Givat Ram, opposite the Israel Museum.
