We walked to the museum from our hotel which was nice. tip: there is a reallly nice organic restaurant there that also sells local produce in very high quality. i highly recommend trying it. The museum grounds are expansive and we loved all the exhibits, a very good experience that we'd gladly repeat (since they closed a few hours after we arrived).

The museum is very good, with lots of interesting artefacts. You can spend all day in there. My main criticism is that is it very difficult to navigate and the direction that you should take in order to view artefacts in a sensible order is often only realise at the end. They should paint markers or a trail on the floor for people to follow. The map they give you isn't very good which doesn't help. The dead sea scrolls part was good, they do have parts of the original scrolls, but the main artefact in the centre is a copy, so I can understand why some would be disappointed. You only get to see a few small portions so it would be better if you could see more and if there was more information about them/where they were found.

Extremely Interesting

Allow at least three hours for this experience. Broad range of topics and displays. Easy to walk around. The only uninteresting element (for me) was the "modern" art exhibition.
