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.

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.
