Layers of glass are used as a metaphor to represent a visual connection of Israels past history. Thousands of names are engraved in the glass that have formed and bonded the people over thousands of years. Visually beautiful but the narrative needs more focus on...More

I do am Jewish and I find this installation pretentious and boring. All the information they give to you might be interesting for Martians in case they will come to Jerusalem, but it is so trivial, and the glass structures are so absurd, that we...More

the chain of generations center is officially a exhibit to connect this generation with history but since they don't offer any information besides that the jewish nation's patriarch's were abraham isaac & jacob and some weird glass ''art'' then all you get is a waste...More

This tour, held in the Old City, has you walk inside this exhibit in the dark and looking at strange stacks of green glass. There's a audio program, but it still didn't help much. Not worth the time or money.

Those of us who have celebrated Passover and said "Next Year in Jerusalem" every year and who have parents and grandparents who have longed to return to the land will appreciate this exhibit. If you allow yourself to enter into each of the glass exhibits...More

As a Jewish American who is very pro-Israel, I found this display offered no new information and repeatedly bludgeoned the captive audience with a racial entitlement message. The Tunnels tour, by way of contrast,was incredible and an extraordinary experience. Compared to the videos I have...More

Beautifully done, but lacking any connection to the land. The glass cutting is spectacular and the idea is strong, but not worth a visit, unless you have seen everything and/or would like to have an indoor activity during bad weather.

This quick little tour conveniently placed right by the Kotel puts into perspective the incredible link between Jews today and their ancestors of thousands of years ago, and how for THOUSANDS of years we've hoped and wished to return to Jerusalem. See the names we've...More

Interesting exhibit and very unique presentation with the cut glass, however, if you don't read hebrew, you don't get as much out of the glass. Movie at end is too hokey and kind of like Star Wars.

Fascinating historical presentation and tour. It is on your left as you face the western wall in the old city of Jerusalem. You go up a staircase to get there.
