  • I first went a few(probably 10+) years back and remember feeling blown away by the ability to blend High art concepts with modern issues. I went again today and enjoyed my couple hours visit (though I...  more »
  • In Jerusalem is a things to do House on the West side of the road Hel Handasa on the green line between the Arab neighborhood Sheikh Jarrah in the East and the ultra-Orthodox quarter MEA she'arim in the West. The Arabic architect Andoni Baramki has built in the 1930s for his family's. In 1948, it is the Israeli command post on the front line against the Jordanian army in East Jerusalem. Next to it stands the Mandelbaum gate as a check point between East and West Jerusalem, it is torn down in 1967 after the six day war. A monument commemorates the transition. Since 1999, the building is home to the "Museum on the seam". Seam translates suture, veins, scar. The Museum presents contemporary art with topics such as the right to protest, the decline of the hegemony of the West, the relations between public and private space. Therefore the building is been left largely in the style of the Arab architects and Builder Baramki as well as in the capacity as Israeli army base with bunker-like rooms and bulletproof steel plates on the Windows. From the roof of the building, there are magnificent views of the Mount of olives, of the old city to East Jerusalem to the dome of the rock, the al-Aqsa Mosque, to the wailing wall, to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, westward to the Jaffa Road. The view alone is worth a visit.

  • A small modern art museum that borders the eastern city. It is very small - an hour is definitely enough time to see the current exhibitions. If you're an art lover, it's worth the visit.

  • Interesting and elegant art exhibits, spectacular rooftop view of divided, diverse Jerusalem. But the essential experience is more political than educational, which may constrain its power as a representation of "the seam."
  • One of the very good museums you can visit in Israel. Cover the subject of conflict zones with most interesting art shows by international artists.
  • Muito bom!
  • I went to visit because it sound like a museum about the 6 day war of Israel when in fact it has nothing to do with that. Its just an exhibition which they change about every six months.
  • Very cooll must see muesum
