Perfect for a Rainy Day in Jerusalem
TripAdvisor RatingReviewed on January 4, 2020

Perfect for a Rainy Day in Jerusalem, today was a wet rainy cold Shabbat day so we opted to go to the museum. It is free admission and a beautiful gift to the City of Jerusalem.

Amazing collections

Went there during an exhinition for 100 years of Jerusalem Armenian ceramics. Highly recommended. It was free of charge on a Saturday morning with rather only few visitors.

One of the highlights of Jerusalem

This museum is a time capsule from the past - both in relation to is building as well as what it contains. The building is beautiful - especially the central courtyard. It has wonderful examples of Armenian tile work. It also contains all the interesting bits from Hisham’s palace near Jericho. This over the top 8th century palace has some crazy architecture - not the best quality and of questionable taste but, boy, it is interesting. This is the Rococo of the Islamic world. This museum is basic but does have old world toilets but no gift shop or cafe. It is just outside the old city and only a short walk from one of the gates on the East side.
