Jewish music museum in Jerusalem
TripAdvisor RatingReviewed 2 days ago

There are many stringed instruments. You can hear what they sound like. It shows that the proprietors love music and went to great lengths and expense. But take time to use the dispensible mouth pieces to try out the shofars etc. Also, the virtual reality Holy Temple experience is the highlight.

For Music Lovers/ Film is awesome

Museum is located in an alley off a main street. Easy to get to by public transportation and a wonderful vegan restaurant half a block in the alley.Try to get a tour because the hand held devices are not sufficient. So many string instruments and you can learn their history and how they sound.The best part comes at the end where you have an awesome film using goggles about the 1st Temple. Keep moving your head around while watching so you don't miss any of it.Recreates the Temple in all its splendor and holiness. This alone is worth the price of admission.

As others have said, this is a collection of instruments, many of them exotic. Many of them don’t seem to have any connection to Jewish music (one is from Vietnam, one is labeled as a Bedouin instrument) or if there is a connection, it was not explained. I didn’t see any mention of Jewish composers or performers or any connection to Israeli music. The laptop “guides” did not work – even the museum attendants couldn’t get them to function. We overheard one of the human guides demonstrating some of the instruments, but it was all about how the instrument sounded, nothing about music and nothing about any connection to Jewishness. The collection is beautifully displayed and the décor is gorgeous. However, the entire place is difficult to navigate – we even had trouble finding the entrance from within the “Kikar ha Musika.” The restrooms are in the basement, but typically, there are no signs showing you how to find them. The interactive games are simplistic and have nothing to do with music. The neighborhood has many charms and the harp shaped fountain was appealing, but we had hoped to learn something about music, and we didn't. We left after less than an hour.
