If you plan on.visiting Jerusalem, you will want to add this Old and very beautiful museum to your schedule. Home to many of the early excavations, this place is filled with examples of historical eras, ranging from bowls, weapons, mosaics and even sarcophagus. It is a treasure just waiting for you. From its grounds you get a great view of Mt Scopus and Old City. Well worth your effort. All exhibits are explained fully and you are not rushed in your touring.

Interesting museum - no entrance fees
TripAdvisor RatingReviewed on June 30, 2017

The archaeological exhibits on display were certainly interesting, although I was missing a map or some guide, or some detailed descriptions. But as there was no entrance fee, I have no right to complain. I would definitely recommend visiting the museum - if you have a spare hour.

Hidden Gem of an Archeological Museum
TripAdvisor RatingReviewed on June 25, 2017

Great museum for those who are interested in archeology. Has pieces going from the Neolithic to the Islamic periods. Not busy at all so you don't have to worry about crowded tour groups.
