That's a very unusual place. Needless to say, it's an Israeli museum, despite the funny signs it has something to do with some Palestinian state's ministry - no such state, no such ministry.

That's a very unusual place. Needless to say, it's an Israeli museum, despite the funny signs it has something to do with some Palestinian state's ministry - no such state, no such ministry. But there is a really nice museum that makes an impression as if it's got stuck somewhere in the 60's. Stroll down the halls full of artifacts belonging to different periods, read about them from the laminated information sheets placed in wall-mounted plastic containers in a rather disorderly manner, and don't forget about the beautiful patio. Two hours should suffice.

I had planned my only day in Jerusalem around this visit that I had been looking forward to very much. Too bad they did not bother to advertise that they would not be open on the Sunday I wanted to visit.Me and all the other tourits who were heading there - nd the museum is not centrally located - had to find out when we got to the door. Very poor customer service to say the least, do call ahead if you want to avoid disappointment.

I can get a good feel for the history of this amazing land. there is no money needed to visit this musesum. But if you go by car, parking is limited to Saturdays only, but it’s not too far from the Damascus Gate to Sultan Suleiman Street. There are also shuttle buses available from the Israel Museum
