  • I'm not religious, but I am a history buff and this place has some awesome history on display with a lot of great descriptions and stories to go along with it
  • An amazing museum. Well organized and the story telling showing a beautiful Narrative of the Biblical time's from all the aspects
  • Best small museum in Jerusalem. Our 11-year old grandchild was in his element. Parking available across road.
