This is an interesting archaeological find, the basement of a home from the period of the destruction of the second temple. Instead of concentrating on the archaeology there is (as usual in modern museums) a cinematic recreation of events of the time. For this site it is based on conjecture and we found it, although slick, very superficial. I would have preferred fact.

A short movie about the family that lived in the Burnt House. The movie was very well done and explained the family's denial of the future events. There were a few artifacts from the house that were found in the ruins.

It was a short tour with only one room containing an excavation along with some descriptions. There was also a short movie of a re-enactment that was very interesting and helped to explain the history of the Old City and in particular the hosue itself.
