  • An underapprieciated gem, slightly outdated displays but still very interesting, and the building is wonderful, especially the garden in the inner courtyard!
  • Very interesting archeological museum. All the discoveries date back to the British mandate period (after the Jewish state was founded, the museum of Israel started to take all findings). The premises dimensions can be compared to the Bible land museum. The entrance is free of charge. I say again - I liked the museum very much.
  • A hidden gem in Eastern Jerusalem!. Opened in 1938, the Rockefeller Archaeological Musuem presents to this day most of its original exhibition, major finds made across the Land of Israel during British Mandate period. A MUST for anyone interested in the history and archaeology of the Holy Land
  • Loved it! Old school museum, galleries around a central atrium. The collection from Hisham's Palace in Jericho is outstanding. Look for information on plastic sheets underneath display cases.
