Burnt House
TripAdvisor RatingReviewed on September 26, 2019

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.

Short and interesting

The visit was about half an hour. There are a few artifacts discovered there and a movie which explains the story of a family in the time of the second temple.

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.
