Russian Museum Jericho, Jericho

#9 of 14 in Museums in Palestinian Territories
Russian Museum Jericho preserves the little-known history of the Russian community in the Holy Land. Inspired by Byzantine architecture, the structure features commanding domes and columns and sits on land once owned by Russian tsars. The museum's star attraction are Byzantine-era mosaics, but many people come to see the lush citrus garden and centuries-old sycamore tree allegedly featured in a story from the Bible.

  • Unfortunately, I did not visit the Russian museum. I visited the sycamore tree next to it, where Jesus made two miracles. He healed the blind man and turned the rich man Zechariah who was evil and cruel man into a kind and generous and loving person. Zechariah, who was very short, climbed the tree to see Jesus and Jesus invited himself to eat with Zechariah and then turned him into a benefactor.
  • The building is beautiful and impressive. But the museum is boring
  • Interesting exhibits, pleasant garden, still digging up treasures, special tree
  • The tickets are a bit to expensive, but the garden is really beautiful and fun to walk through.
  • Very nice place in Jericho
