There is a lot of somewhat interesting art at this museum so it's worth seeing. The old synagogues were to me the highlight. I also enjoyed some of the modern art. I have to say I have never understood all the hoopla around the Shrine...More

Huge model of Jerusalem during the time of the Second Temple. A decent collection of Impressionist paintings. So nice pieces of sculpture. Oh, yeah and the Dead Sea Scrolls. Wish I had more time to spend. Next time I'm in country.

Enjoy your time. If you really want to visit Israel Museum you have to take some hours of your trip to Jerusalem. Arrive early and stay until the end of the day.

Be careful to check ahead if it is open - disappointing but at least it gave the opportunity to visit the adjacent museum. Sad to have missed out on this one. Website was checked before but it was not clear enough for me

Great visit to this museum. The Building housing Remnants of Dead Sea scrolls and the Aleppo Codex was amazing, beautiful pi GE of architecture! Built to replicate a cave/tunnel where silence and solemnity rule - all underscoring what an important fine this was. Sculptures outside...More
