Enter through a colorful courtyard of plants, where one of the Dar Zahran Jaghab descendants will welcome you in to tour the property. Wander through the art gallery and photo exhibit, documenting the lives, fashion, and landscape of Ramallah from 1850 to 1979.

  • Great cultural house with a very nice owner.
  • Extremely friendly owner. A very beautiful place. Lots of history and souvenirs.
  • The owner of the place gives you a great tour in three old houses merged together to showcase the history and struggle of the people who used to live there. It dossent forget the modern culture and the times in between.
