Dishonest History

This museum was built by a *Palestinian* Family in 1937 as their family. Let’s not omit this important piece of information.how can you be a place of coexistence if you don’t even recognize who built the building to begin with?????

Very interesting museum

Very unique museum. nOn one side of the museum is the Jewish Mea Shearim neighborhood and across the road - East Jerusalem. The building itself retains its uniqueness in the area.nWe had a guided tour. Very interesting, especially the Metropolis exhibition - well shown.

Nice idea

We went to the Museum on the Seam, at the join of Palestinian Arab East Jerusalem and Jewish West Jerusalem. And indeed we got there on the bus from West Jerusalem via Ultra-religious Jewish neighbourhoods, and left on the light railway, full of Arabs and Jews travelling together. My friend said the railway carriage felt like an extension of the exhibition! The museum is a place that wants to stress living together and it does succeed in this. The staff are both Jewish and Arab and very helpful. There is a lovely rooftop cafe with an amazing view over the old and new cities. The exhibition we saw (now finished) had a very simple message about Jews, Christians and Moslems living together. Perhaps too simple? But perhaps not, since so many people today seem to find this very difficult. Good for the museum for trying. Perhaps the best part of the exhibition was the short film taken in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre which stressed that while pilgrims may come there for spiritual uplift, the monks of the different denominations are often at odds with each other. The photography here was wonderful. I look forward to seeing other exhibitions here.
