  • The museum is perfectly designed to integrate with urban surrounding. It is a must see when visiting Ramallah. 
  • Have you read "The flowers of Orange", "exile again"? A poem by Mahmoud Darwish or a film of Elia Suleiman do more to the Palestinian cause than a shotgun. Finding myself in Ramallah (to buy fresh dates), I went to salute the memory of the poet. The sober architecture Museum. Rich documentation. Very well received. This visit encourages me to read other Darwish poems at my back.

  • Known not to Mahmoud Darwish before our visit. Interesting to get with them. A part of info on English, but could well have been more.

  • 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.
  • Loved this place. The location with gardens and scenes around are amazing.
  • A great tribute for the amazing poet, may his soul rest in peace.
  • It's a beautiful place to visit in the city.
  • Very nice museum
