The museum of Islamic art is a great place to learn first of all about Islam. Untainted by political commentary, the museum tells the story of the religion itself, accompanied by exquisite pieces of art that capture the importance of various aspects of the religion. Unrelated, the museum also houses an important collection of clocks and pocket (not wrist) watches. Definitely put it on your list.

Many wonderful examples of Islamic Art from the region. The exhibit comprises three floors, and spans various ethnicities and cultures.

The watch and clock collection is fascinating, not only because of the interesting and professional presentation, but also because of the 'James Bond' story behind them...being stolen for 25 years and rediscovered only in 2008! Don't miss the movie telling the story and don't forget to ask for the AudioGuide because sometimes they forget to offer it (costs 10NIS). The collection is interesting for both adults and kids. enjoy.
