  • This lovely, interesting museum is opening before it's visitors a complete picture of history of Jewish people, Judea at the last centuries b.c.e. There is a Second Temple period (V c.b.c.e - I c. c.e), the period that is parallel to the history of Hellenistic Greece (from Greece-Percian wars), Alexander conquests, rise of Roman empire. The First Temple period and early Jewish state remains (XII-V cc.b.c.e) you can see in other museums in Jerusalem, like Israel Museum and Rockefeller Museum.
  • Ruins of wealthy homes from the 1st century and before. Very well presented.
  • Literally enter the world of Second Temple period Jerusalem before the Roman destruction of 68 CE. The lifestyle of elegance and of ritual purity fused together becomes clear as you walk through home after home. There is a brief glimpse at First Temple period remains in the first hallway's display cases. Allow 40 minutes. A must visit.
  • Blow the street of the Jewish part of the old city you will see this..great and must do
  • One of the most exciting places in the jewish quarter.
