This is a very old school museum and not in great repair, but we liked it. Many archaeology treasures for people willing to look. Previous home to the Dead Sea Scrolls. Make it an adventure to find the museum from Old Town via the Damascus Gate. It sits high on a hill with a good view of the city. Free entry, but limited open hours. The afternoon we were there had very few visitors. it's large, but not gigantic. We spent about an hour. Had clean restrooms. Did not have onsite refreshments for sale. This building is clearly home to a large workforce, so don't be spoofed by all the cars in the parking lot. They are employees associated with archaeology and other matters that occur on the broader campus.

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.
