The museum is easy to find while on your walk outside the Old City. All the archeological finds are displayed in an open manner and are truly stunning. Easy to read labels in English, Hebrew and Arabic. Not to be missed for those interested in the history of the region.

Free entry. The museum was located across the road from Herod’s gate. It housed a huge collection of artefacts unearthed in Israel. There were some previous archives photo on displayed throughout the museum. Separated into North and South wing and there were some side halls displaying artefacts unearthed from other eras. All the artefacts were numbered however not all of them were given a description and explanation of its purpose in its era. The museum is well lit and cool. It’s roof was high. Toilet facilities were free for use and a water dispenser for the thirsty. Overall a great place to spend a morning before leaving Jerusalem.

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.
