The air conditioning was wonderfully refreshing. The simulated story with narration was a bit cheesy but gave context to the history of the area. More entertaining for kids than just looking at archaeological findings.

The archaeological remains of the burnt house are fascinating and the wall panels and artifacts do much to bring it to life. But the loooong video is just a soap opera about an imagined life in the house at the time of the destruction of the temple by the Romans. It's like days of our lives. Says nothing about the remains of the house, just a long film about the various characters who might have lived there. Bit of a missed opportunity to be honest.

A museum with high historical and emotional value

This little museum shows how was the house of the high priest in the year 70 AD when the Temple was destroyed and it shows a very interesting and well done video that takes back on time and shows you the internal conflict under that time.
