The Bible Lands Museum hosts artifacts from the Middle East dating back to around 3,500 BCE up through the early Christian Era. For those who may have gotten confused by its name, the Bible Lands Museum is not a Museum about the history of the Bible. To the contrary, most of the artifacts attempt to show life in the ancient Middle East. In some cases, the exhibits try to tie artifacts to bible passages. The museum is relatively small and can be seen over a few hours. The exhibits are presented chronologically, starting with humans as hunter gathers. For anyone interested in ancient Middle East culture, it is a must see. The entry fee is 44 NIS or roughly $12 US. There is a small refreshment area.

Went to this private museum to see a relatively new exhibit it was hosting: In the Valley of David and Goliath. This exhibit recorded and presented the archaeological discoveries on the tel of an ancient garrison town called Shaarayim (Two Gates) which I had explored a couple of years ago. What makes this town so unusual were its two gates. Also it was used for a relatively short period of time. Located in the Ella Valley its job was to protect the approach to Jerusalem from the southwest. In short, it was especially meaningful for me to visit this exhibit after having hiked in the area that was being documented.

Very good exhibits of archaeology, give context to some of the probable objects and culture that the Israelis may have used and lived in during the different bible time periods. Good snapshot overview of ancient history whether religious or not. Strongly recommend audio guide app. Allow more time, our visit was a tad rushed.
