This museum is across the road from the Israel Museum in Jerusalem, so the best thing is to make a day of it and visit both of them. The Bible Lands Museum shows interesting archeological items (Egyptian, Roman, Greek, Persian,etc. ) and they are well organised. You are allowed to take pictures as long as you do not use flash. There is an entrance fee and a small cafeteria inside the museum. A taxi from around the old city to this museum should be around 50 shekels, and is easy finding taxis on your back to the old city from the front of the Israel Museum.

The Bible Lands Museum (NIS 44 per adult) is located across from the Israel Museum and is a very good museum for those interested in early Middle Eastern civilisations. Opening hours are 10-2pm (Fri-Sat) and 9.30-5.30pm (Sun to Thurs) with late opening hours to 9.30pm (Weds). The museum is a private collection of scholar, Elie Borowski and opened in 1992. Here you find a nicely laid out museum highlighting ancient civilisations of the Bible Lands: Egypt, Syria, Mesopotamia, Persia, Greece, Rome and Anatolia. Exhibition areas are spaced well, include highlight artefacts and text that provides a fair summary and feel for the various cultures and peoples of the ancient Bible Lands. Note: There is a free audio guide, which I found to be particularly useful if you enjoy hearing insight and details regarding museum displays. On the lower level of the museum, there is a very interesting exhibition of the recent archaeological discovery 'In the Valley of David and Goliath' that is quite enjoyable, particularly if visited as part of a free English tour, offered at the museum (10.30am) each day with an additional English tour at 5.30pm on Wednesdays. Overall, we enjoyed our 2.5 hour visit to the Bible Lands Museum during our recent visit to Jerusalem. It is a nice complement to the excellent Israel Museum, just across the parking lot and can make for a good combined visit if time allows.

Take time to explore this wonderful place as it holds so much. Best visited in the heat of the day as it is wonderfully cool and inviting.

Surprisingly first rate
