The Biblical Lands Museum in Jerusalem invites you to experience firsthand the history of ancient Middle East cultures. These cultures laid many of the foundations for the world we live in today.

The different peoples who lived in the region and the empires that ruled over it had constantly changed throughout history, and they shaped the backbone of contemporary Western culture. The peoples of the biblical lands have developed our understanding of science and technology, language and writing, economics, commerce, faith, and religion. 

The Biblical Lands Museum invites you to explore various exhibitions to familiarize you with the cultures and peoples who ruled and flourished in the region – Egypt, Sumer, Babylon, Assyrian, Canaan, Persia, Greece, and Rome. The variety of ancient cultures surrounding Israel also puts into perspective its current reality. 

The Land of Israel, with Jerusalem as its center and capital, has always served as a bridge between the great cultures of the past and a path through which people, armies, goods, and even ideas, perceptions, and beliefs have passed. Every culture has left its mark on our landscape and culture and left countless treasures underground. The museum serves the purpose of accentuating these bridges and connections throughout the history of this remarkable region. The Biblical Lands Museum in Jerusalem invites you to join a fascinating tour that will guide us through the roots of the Israeli people, as well as the place where humanity, as we know it today, was born.
