An impressive collection of Islamic art makes for a nice diversion in West Jerusalem, and also makes for a nice break from the tourist circuit, as most of the visitors seem to be locals and not foreign tourists. The clock and watch exhibit is quite spectacular, but of course these are all European made and have little to do with Islam--they just happen to have been collected by the museum's benefactor. But this makes for a nice air-conditioned stop and feels somewhat different than most of the stops on the Typical Jerusalem tourist map.

Grandparents took 4 grandchildren for a cultural and experiential morning to the L.A. Mayer Museum of Islamic Art, in Jerusalem. A well-organized Escape Room hunt to find the 'missing' watch that was stolen in a robbery at the Museum many years earlier, kept our grandchildren (ages 7-11) occupied for over an hour. Then we went to the Arts/Crafts room where they spent the next hour working-on creative arts projects, with a most helpful staff member. And to top it off, a visit to a most fascinating, well-organized and appealing museum of Islamic culture.

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.
