Too many times, in attempts to be comprehensive, museums have room upon room of displays which can present too much to a visitor who is not there for academic or study purposes. The Rockefeller Museum displays a nice, representative collection through time and history. Multi-language identifications and descriptions help make the museum very "friendly" for a visit. For those who desire more information or are looking to do some research, the museum also has a good library.

If you are into glass or crumbled building pieces, this might be your place. Inside are many many things, none of which were memorable enough for me to take pictures of. Table after table of objects under light without explanation. Looked more like a flea market than a museum. There was one alcove of mosaic that was pretty. Of course, the small fountain which would have made it a little more attractive was off. It’s not under air, so it was cold and damp in February. Unlike many places, there was seating to rest. It certainly wasn’t to enjoy a work of art.

Perfect for a Rainy Day in Jerusalem

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.
