The Museum sits in what used to be a military surveillance point, just on the border between East and West Jerusalem.

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.

Small Gem of a Gallery

Most of the written and internet findings I read suggested that this is actually a museum with some historical relevance however, we were surprised to discover that it is actually a "socio political contemporary art museum". To this end, it is a bit of a gem. Housed on three floors this Gallery...

Most of the written and internet findings I read suggested that this is actually a museum with some historical relevance however, we were surprised to discover that it is actually a "socio political contemporary art museum". To this end, it is a bit of a gem. Housed on three floors this Gallery present themed exhibits that challenge the status quo and current thinking in any number of socio-political areas. The exhibit we saw was focused on feminine issues/challenges to Orthodox Judaism. It presented an interesting "other" side to current practices. All signage is in Hebrew and English, there is a cute café on the roof and a terrace (although the view is really of no consequence). They also have a gift shop with an interesting collection of items. If you're looking for something a little different that may challenge how you currently think about certain social issues than you'll certainly enjoy spending 1-2hours here. It's easy walking distance from Damascus Gate.
