This is a building for conferences and conventions- local and international. It's always busy. There is a large auditorium and many smaller conference rooms. It is also a facility for special events. I've been here a number of times, including this week. It's a functional and useful place. The only tourism interest or potential has to do with the history of the city- its destruction and its unification- - the Roman 10th Legion camped here during the siege on Jerusalem and destruction of the Second Temple 2000 years ago (there are remains underground with a glass floor so one can see), and more recently, it was the site of the command operations for the liberation of Jerusalem 50 years ago.

While the International Convention Centre in and of itself is literaly 'nothing to write home about' it is an identifiable piece of the Jerusalem landscape and consequently is deserving of a visit. With clean modern lines it would be equally at home in either Toronto or Boston. Visible from and located directly opposite the Central Bus Station (CBS) it is however not that easy to get to on your first visit. Between the CBS and the Convention Centre is a sea of excavations and roadways. After crossing the light rail line and roadway there is a pedestrian underground from which one has to take a temporary counterintuitive turn and then walk up a roadway before finding the steps to the plaza. What makes the Convention Centre so important is the many important events which are held there each year. This past February I was able to get to my first visit to the Jerusalem International Book Fair. Held ever second year with over 300 publishers from 30+ countries it is a not to be missed event. When time is tight on a trip it is good to have got 'the lay of the land' ahead of time. Once returning from the Centre I took the lower roadway towards the harp bridge and following some agile locals actually cut through a construction excavation site (probably illegal and not recommended) before coming out lower down on the roadway in front of the CBS. The second time I took the longer, but safer, route along the pedestrian walkways and crossings. On both occasions it was good to have company. During the recent heavy snowfall part of the Centre was opened briefly as an evacuation centre for stranded travellers. Reading the news reorts I could picture where they were in my mind's eye as a result of having been there. If you don't feel up to coping with getting back to the CBS, behind the Convention Centre are roadways leading to several of the israeli Government Institutions such as the Bank of Israel, The Supreme Court and the Knesset as well as the Wohl Rose Garden. Architecturally these buildings are of interest, but it is somewhat of a long walk. An inexpensive cab ride to the middle will permit one to wander around several of them before catching a bus back to downtown Jerusalem. Be sure to take a warm sweater or polar fleece as the open areas can be windy on overcast days. Have fun exploring !
