    This museum recounts in paintings, sculptures and written the history of the Hebrew people. We went with the guide of the tour which was explaining what we were seeing.

    Great museum with lots to see. Has a great art collection and a large judicia section. Great place to visit for a day. Best museum in the country. Very interesting and I would highly recommend going to check it out.

    After 30 years, undergoing a major renovation. So far wonderfully successful.
