    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) 😎

    After seeing the place where the dead sea scrolls were found and being able to come and see the artifacts and the dead Sea Scroll was amazing

    Super interesting if you go with time and energy. It took me 2 hours to see it entirely (read everything). Big groups of students usually go there so it's better to go with noise-cancelling headphones.

    Great place to see while staying in Jerusalem. They have the dead sea scrolls, the world's tiniest bible, a full scale model of Jerusalem in the 2nd temple period and more. A must see.

    Very interesting. The place has a movie for kids too so they can understand the story. Very cool

Where to stay in Jerusalem

Although it lacks a big selection of mid-range options, Jerusalem provides plenty of choices in the top-end hotel category. The Old City contains the bulk of Jerusalem's small hotels, inexpensive hostels, and religious hospices, all of which appeal to budget-conscious travelers. West Jerusalem offers additional options in the form of guesthouses and bigger hotels, some of which boast five-star ratings. If you just need a bed, consider a youth hostel, where you can choose between private and common rooms with Wi-Fi included.
