I went to the museum to see the Hamsa exhibit. It was absolutely amazing. I toured the entire museum. The exhibits are gorgeous. I loved the room with all the clocks from different eras. Really the entire museum is worth the time to visit & linger among the beauty displayed there. Will definitely go back next time I'm in Israel.

Lately the museum went through a process of innovation, bringing to the public highlights of modern artists linked with Islamic arts. Presently there is an exhibition of Hamsa showcasing the various influences on the same theme. Few months ago , there was an exhibition of Iranian posters. Incredibly interesting.

A beautiful place with interesting exhibits

The Museum for Islamic Art in Jerusalem is just in the right size, for a 2 hour visit is more than enough to see all the Exhibitions in the museum. It's a shame that the instructor wasn't sufficiently professional. The Permanent Exhibitions are very interesting, but it is unclear how the exhibits are divided...

The Museum for Islamic Art in Jerusalem is just in the right size, for a 2 hour visit is more than enough to see all the Exhibitions in the museum. It's a shame that the instructor wasn't sufficiently professional. The Permanent Exhibitions are very interesting, but it is unclear how the exhibits are divided among the different spaces. The watches and clocks collection is amazing in its beauty, although there is no connection between it and Islamic art apart from the exhibits being works of art (the collection was assembled by Sir David Lionel Salomons in the early 20th century. His daughter and heir, Vera Bryce Salomons, is the founder and financial supporter of the museum and due to her decision the collection is exhibited in the museum). Currently on show: "Khamsa, Khamsa, Khamsa" The Khamsas exhibition is an interesting exhibition, but not rich enough, and in this case as well it is not clear how it relates to Islamic art.
