Fun to see Jerusalem at the time of Jesus in the model city. Note: no photography in the Dead Sea Scroll section. But it was very interesting. Don't pass up the other museum on site. Great exhibits from the Roman era.

I spent over four hours here and was amazed at the exhibits and what I learned. The Dead Sea Scrolls were a highlight and warranted their own building. Its interesting to look at them and read the description of what is being said. I finally...More

Among the many exhibits, the dead sea scrolls are particularly fascinating-both because they were found, and because of what they contain. They(and facsimiles) are beautifully displayed, and contrasted with other...More

Everything in this museum has been carefully curated or every visitor. The collections are meaningful and it’s impossible to see everything in a day (need a week, at least). They offer audio guides in many languages on iPhones. The architecture itself is a work of...More

In my opinion the permanent exhibition is a must for any body who is is interested in the archeology and history of the land of the bible. In addition interesting exhibitions about Judaism, Israeli and international art. Follow the contemporary exhibition. The setting of the...More

Allow a whole day to spend time here, or certainly 4 hours- Dead Sea Scrolls, massive model of Jerusalem in the 1st century, excellent art from all ages and a superb overview of the history of 'the Land from prehistory through to the 14th century.
