  • It opened in 1992 as a museum for exhibiting personal collections on Elie Borowski. The building was modern and beautiful. There are many relics such as old books, coins, statues, weapons and pottery.

  • We were seeing the exhibition to the depths of the blue. It's just amazing to see the subject so unfamiliar. The instructor Leah Drucker volunteers at a museum, courteous and knowledgeable. Is on a sixth tour of ancient writing and the connection between the biblical stories and the tales of other peoples-Akkad, Ashur

  • Great place to visit whilst in Jerusalem very interesting exhibits and a stone throw from the national museum so hard to miss. Well worth a visit and the staff are great.
  • Way better than I expected. The history if seals and how they were used by people was fascinating. Way more exhibits than I thought. Wish we had more time here
  • Well structured exhibition featuring object that are somehow connected to nations and places mentioned in the Bible. We got a free guided tour.

  • Compact ,intelligent display,and rich information .Highly recommended
