    Small, informative, and well presented without too many modern gizmos. A useful place to visit. We were escorted by a knowlegeable, English-speaking guide with pleasant manner.

    Good collection, well thought out and arranged chronologically. It's a nice complement to the Israel Museum nearby.

    The Shrine of the Book houses the Dead Sea Scrolls and other ancient texts. The Shrine of the Book, adjoining the Israel Museum, is constantly dowsed with water. The Scrolls are on display for three months at a time, to prevent light damage. Unfortunately, many visitors ignore the request not to use flashes, which can harm he scrolls.

    Accidentally stumbled by this gem on my way to get a falafel on Ben Yehudah. Beautiful small art museum which includes a completely reconstructed 1700-era Venetian synagogue that was transferred to Jerusalem in the 1950s. A slice of rarely appreciated Jewish history. Raoul the docent was extremely friendly and helpful.

    Very engaging and entertaining way to learn about Herzl and his dream. A mixture of video clips and moving between rooms to learn some of the facts. You are even in the audience of one of the congress meetings at one point.

    It was an enjoyable hour or so on a drizzly February day. Not difficult to reach and the light railway will take you back to town.

    The museum, is open in part, the multimedia section presents a very exciting immersive installation that traces the entire history of the city. Very recommended for those who want an introduction to the complex history of Jerusalem.

    I don’t know how many tax museums there are in the world, but Jerusalem’s must be up there with the very best! After several score visits to the city, I was looking for something a little different, and this Fit the bill. The one room museum offers a tour of taxation systems in what is now Israel over the last 2000 years.One issue is that all of the signage was in Hebrew; the museum does possess an English translation of the main Descriptions, but the subsidiary ones – – that is the descriptions of actual exhibits – – are all in Hebrew. Still, if you work for the IRS or some fraternal organization you will be in seventh heaven here! I was only slightly amused, but it was not a bad way to spend an hour or so before heading off to Machane Yehuda market for lunch. By the way, the museum does not tax you! It’s free!

    I stumbled on this museum after I visited Yad Lakashish. This history behind this museum gives great insight into Lechi, Etzel, and Hagana. These were all resistance groups to the British occupation. It is a self guided tourwith a short movie. I would give it 1-2 hours.

    In the center of Jerusalem it is possible to find a quiet place with a great museum and a restaurant.
    It was the home of Anna Ticho and her husband a known eye doctor.
    It was good that the place was kept and not converted in the high rising buildings as many in the area.
    Even the garden was saved and the gallery as part of the Israel Museum has a permanent exhibition and also temporary exhibits of Israel artist.
    The resturant was located in a upper floor, mainly of italian food.
    It is also a coffee place to enjoy at all time.
    It is possible also to have small group celebrations in a separate room.
    The elevator to get to the third floor is small and not always work what is a problem for elderly people. It should be consider to fix it.

    It was a short tour with only one room containing an excavation along with some descriptions. There was also a short movie of a re-enactment that was very interesting and helped to explain the history of the Old City and in particular the hosue itself.

    Our favorite part of the experience was the welcoming interaction with our wonderful and informative guide Aliza. The purpose of this museum to is show the connection from Biblical Times of the People to the "Aretz HaTova"-- "The Good Land". The original trinity is G-d, The Jewish People and the Land of Israel. The "Seven Species" which are the centerpiece of the presentation, are the produce of the Land that were brought to the Temple three times a year. The antiquities on display were also related to the "Seven Species". The same species have taken on Christian meanings as well, related to Jesus. All of this was conveyed in a very well produced film and in other videos with local people engaged in farming this produce today. We greatly enjoyed the interview videos of the descendants of the Kokia family and their memories of growing up visiting with their grandparents in this house and neighborhood and their good relationships with their Arab neighbors. Please be sure to phone ahead or register on line before you visit. Highly recommended.
