It's a gallery, not a museum
Valutazione di TripAdvisorRivisto il January 16, 2019

Deceptively described and marketed. The artwork is beautiful and the owner is informative. On the other hand, it is certainly not a museum. It Is an art gallery where the point is to purchase artwork. Don't go if you are expecting exhibits of curated artwork.

Favorite store in all of the Old City

The Museum of Psalms now has a store downstairs from the original Museum of Psalms. It had only been open 4 months when we came upon it. This particular store was our favorite of all the stores in the Old City. Mordecai has carefully selected artists for whom he would like to showcase their art and give the public availability to purchase their work. All the artwork he has chosen is beautiful, reasonably priced, and unlike anything we had seen before. The artists he has chosen are extremely talented. The artists we spoke to were humble about their own work and promoted the work of others in the gallery. We found this to be refreshing and rare. Needless to say we felt quite fortunate to have come upon this shop during our visit to Jerusalem. The Museum of the Psalms was one of only two stores in the Old City that we felt the peace to wander, browse, and ask questions without any pressure. All other stores in all the quarters of the Old City used a psychological ploy as an attempt to get you to purchase but not this one. There was great respect given to the customers. All from our tour group who found the store made note of this difference, spoke of it being their favorite store and purchased art work to bring home for framing as well. We did not have the opportunity to visit the upstairs Museum Of The Psalms that all others are mentioning here but we did peek in the windows and saw the beauty that all have mentioned. Hopefully we can return to Jerusalem one day and have the privilege of getting to see and hear about the displayed work. We found Mordecai and two of the artist’s he showcases in his store (one was Azriel Gess) to be extremely honorable good men. It was a pleasure to have met them as well as have their work in our home and our friend’s homes in the states. If you visit the Old City we encourage you to visit both locations~ The Museum of The Psalms Store which is in the lower level of the Jewish Quarter and the upstairs Museum of The Psalms.

A very nice little museum about the Book of Psalms, with work of rabbi Moshe Tzvi HaLevi Berger
