  • 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.
  • Loved this place. The location with gardens and scenes around are amazing.
  • Very nice place
  • Beautiful gardens, with a refined and simple museum inside. Definitely helps if you speak Arabic, since most of Darwish's writings on display are untranslated. A very peaceful corner of Ramallah.
  • It's a beautiful place to visit in the city.
