  • Detailed exhibit of the Dead Sea Scrolls and the village in which they were found. Real shame that most of the key scrolls are only facsimiles. Noisey crowds often spoil the solemn atmosphere.
  • Very clean & organized. Easy to get to the display tables & reading material. Spiritual
  • Amazing! The DEAD SEA SCROLLS! A very 'cool' place to spend a hot afternoon. No Flash Photos! They will escort you out, I saw it happen! (Never saw that guy again) 😎
  • The actual book wasn’t that interesting since it’s just copies. The architecture was really thoughtful, and the dome is pretty cool looking. It’s worth coming to because the museum and sculpture garden are both pretty exceptional.
  • Connected to the Isreal Museum, no pictures allowed eventhough the scrolls shown are almost all (99%) are reproductions.
