Great little museum for those who enjoy music culture
TripAdvisor RatingReviewed today

Travel from room to room and experience the Hebrew music of various countries of the Middle East and Asia with the aid of personal iPad type mini-computers. Well thought out and good for kids over about the age of 7 and adults. Lots to see and hear.

A unique experience

We had been looking forward to our visit to this museum, and made reservations over a month in advance. Unfortunately, when we arrived, they had no record of our reservation. But they did manage to accommodate us, and we toured this unique museum with the help of a tablet and headphones. We were amazed and the vast array of musical instruments from all over the world on display. With the help of the tablet and headphones, we could hear how each instrument sounds and learn all kinds of interesting facts, including the ties of these instruments to Jewish history and music. I'm not sure how interesting this would be for kids, but they would most definitely enjoy the virtual reality tour of the holy Temple at the end of the tour. All in all a delightful way to spend an hour or two in beautiful Jerusalem. (Great gift shop too!)

This museum traces the cultural development of musical instruments through different regions Jews have inhabited. On the surface it is a great idea, but for a musically minded person there are some shortcomings; most of the lyre samples sound as if they have been played on the same instrument. The technology is a nice touch but is not always reliable and so much more could be done with it. The range of the exhibits tries to be thorough but in doing so, is an exercise in overkill and it gets tiring. But there is a lot to learn and some nice interactive activities, so it is a win for young kids and early teens. And the final exhibit is very intriguing.

I did not know what to expect and I am so glad to have come to this museum. Where to begin? Technology..an iPad and headphones to have an over the top experience. Swipe the icon on the wall, select and instrument on view...and hear how it sounds. And many options to try an instrument yourself. Some interactive games. Stunning exhibition galleries that incorporate the country and instruments being exhibited. And a virtual reality tour of the Temple. I went with another adult and four children between 5 and 9. We were there for two hours! Everyone had an amazing experience.

Beautifully laid out, a collection of musical instruments from around the Jewish world. Each visitor gets an IPad and earphones where they can see details of each instrument and hear them. Arranged geographically. New, modern and very well maintained. Suitable for children (not too small) and adults alike. And situated on a very attractive,...

Beautifully laid out, a collection of musical instruments from around the Jewish world. Each visitor gets an IPad and earphones where they can see details of each instrument and hear them. Arranged geographically. New, modern and very well maintained. Suitable for children (not too small) and adults alike. And situated on a very attractive, pedestrian street, off the "Kikar Hamusika" (Music Square), with four or five attractive kosher resturants around.
