The museum hosts an amazing collection of ceramics, glassware, jewelry and artwork arranged by the different eras of Islamic culture and expression, which serves to add context to the Middle East and to Islam generally speaking. The museum is in a very pretty neighborhood as well, with a nearby cafe (Talbiye Cafe) only 200 meters away, which serves great bistro food. A very nice way to spend the afternoon.

The ceramics are especially good; the glassware and metalwork and some thematic exhibits are worth seeing.

The early ceramics and lusterware are especially interesting, but I guess it depends on your interests. There are also some good examples of early kufic calligraphy.

Amazing gem of a museum!

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.
