This is not just another 'boring' museum. It was an unforgettable experience. The display of instruments from all over the world was in itself impressive. But the ambience in each room devoted to a particular geographic region enhanced the experience, coupled with the audio system which allowed one to hear the sound of each instrument. The highlight came at the end of the tour, with the virtual reality experience of being inside the Second Temple in Jerusalem two thousand years ago, listening to the Levites sing and play their instruments and watching the aspects of the Temple service. As bonus, the museum is adjacent to Museum Square, with an assortment of cafes and restaurants where music is constantly played in the outside plaza.

The problem with most music museums displaying old instruments is that you don't know how they sound. In this museum, using a computer tablet, you get to hear the instrument as well as see it and read its history. The rooms are beautifully displayed in the style of the country whose instruments are being displayed. The final spectacular experience, not really musical, is a three dimensional virtual reality trip back to the Hebrew Temple Mount, including the Holy of Holies. The use of computer tablet throughout the museum is unique and very well done.

I would like to have heard music rather than individual notes. However two things justify a visit - the virtual tour of the Solomonic Temple which was tremendous and the charm of the very informative and helpful attendants

Terrific museum
TripAdvisor RatingReviewed on May 16, 2017

This museum is good for all ages. Interactive iPad explains all the instruments and lets you listen to their sound. The highlight of the visit is a virtual reality tour of the temple. I've been there twice and will definitely go again!! Great gift shop too.

Fantastic museum experience

I was emotionally moved by the displays, presentation and all of the technology in presenting information about Jewish music across the world. I spent almost 3 hours there and I plan to revisit the museum on my return to Jerusalem. I actually find myself speechless in attempting to describe this wonderful experience.
