Regrettably, my visit to this museum fell flat for a number of reasons. I was so excited to visit while in Jerusalem, as I love contemporary art, but though this museum preaches inclusivity and social awareness I found it sorely lacking. I'll keep this short- the museum claims to be on the "Seam" of Muslim and Jewish sections of Jerusalem, and yet all of the museum descriptions were in English and Hebrew, without accessibility to Arabic speakers. There were no artists from the Arab world, and most exhibits were from the West- which would be fine, except that the majority of pieces involved female oppression in the Arab world and veiling in religious traditions, particularly Islam. This is an important issue, and the art was very impactful, but this discourse came from western artists and I couldn't help but feel that Arab women were left out of the conversation, and were instead just used as a voiceless subject throughout the museum. As someone who was excited to attend this museum, and still enjoyed my visit but just has a few remarks, I would love to see this institution improve its ability to represent the "Seam" with a bit more thought, perhaps by adding Arabic descriptions and including Arab artists more in their galleries alongside Israeli and western creators.

The Museum sits in what used to be a military surveillance point, just on the border between East and West Jerusalem. It's surrounded by the Jewish Orthodox neighbourhood of Mea Shearim and the mostly Palestinean areas across the street that used to divide the city. Thus the name is truly purposeful.

The Museum sits in what used to be a military surveillance point, just on the border between East and West Jerusalem. It's surrounded by the Jewish Orthodox neighbourhood of Mea Shearim and the mostly Palestinean areas across the street that used to divide the city. Thus the name is truly purposeful. The building and the views from the small holes for weaponry is worth some time. And the exhibition was carefully curated, alongside themes, in this case women and their place in modern society. A small museum in a great location to spend big time. A must every time you visit the city.

I have never had a more disturbing experience. I lead my life based on tolerance and reaching out to those different than me. I was excited to see a museum dedicated to my same values - and in Jerusalem, a city suffering from so much intolerance. My disappointment was painful when I found exhibit after exhibit that demonized one group of people. In a misplaced effort to express tolerance the museum had display after display that demonstrated intolerance. I found myself more and more disturbed by the hate expressed here. In a city rich with museums, this is a museum not worth your time.
