  • Although the memorial is a beautiful landmark, worth seeing, the museum itself is quite small: only one big room. 10 minutes are more than enough to spend inside.
  • A must-see for anyone visiting Ramallah. I met the manager of the museum and he is amazing. The exhibit is manageable (doesn't take all day) and has all the essential pieces of Darwish's life
  • Great architecture, combined with a good location and cultural value makes it a must visit when in Ramallah. It's great to go there with kids or with the family or with a date.
  • Awesome place, must check out
  • A landmark of Palestinian modern cultural scene. The location includes the burial place of late Poet Mahmoud Darwish, Museum commemorating his life and works, a cultural events hall, outdoor amphitheater, and beautiful park.
