The Museum in its unique way, presents art as a language with no boundaries in order to raise controversial social issues for public discussion. At the center of the changing exhibitions in the Museum stand the national, ethnic and economic seam lines in their local and universal contexts.

Interesting place with a clear message. Only issue I had with it was that a few times I felt as though they were forcing themselves to find conflict in Israel when it wasn't really there

The entrance door through WE sculpture is best exponate. Expected: re-unification historic museum, since name, location (old border) and door.

Museum on the Seam is a small, 3 floor museum that mounts one exhibition at a time, all united by a common theme: liminality, borders, walls, transitions, tension between two distinct things that occupy the same space. The exhibits change every ~6 months; they might...More

LIke many such places in other cities as well, this is a small gem, off the beaten track and packs a punch. AS you approach it, you may walk by it. The building is ugly and nondescript. Once you enter, you will most likely be...More

A small modern art museum that borders the eastern city. It is very small - an hour is definitely enough time to see the current exhibitions. If you're an art lover, it's worth the visit.

If you have a couple of hours to spare in Jerusalem, I'd recommend this small but peculiar museum. It is located in a fine building built in the 1930s, that between 1948 and 1967 served as an Israeli military outpost on the border between Israel...More

A historical place (old frontline between Israel and Jordan) with political exhibitions. Nice view from the roof. Worth a visit when you have some more days in Jerusalem. Entrance fee is 30 shekel (25 for students).

Very interesting contemporary art museum, located on the seam between Orthodox Jewish neighborhoods and east Jerusalem. Easy access with the light rail right in front of the museum. Don't miss the panorama from the roof top. You might want to consider buying a combined ticket...More
