  • 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.
  • It's cool. It wasn't mind blowing but it is worth your while if you like history. Nothing bad to report. Lots of good.
  • Worth going when it's hot outside. The film is good the main bit is ok.
  • 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

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.
