Love this place, where you can (if you like) get a low-down of the history and culture of "tatreez" (Palestinian folk embroidery) from the owner/proprietor Maha. Here, you could try on some clothes in both contemporary and traditional designs, purchase some embroidered home decor (cushions and the like), jewellery, or even have a rest in the old-fashioned traditional-style red-black patterned...

Yes it has some good museum pieces of life in Palestine in former times, but it's really just a shop trying to sell you expensive souvenirs. It's also really dusty! You are better off visiting the newly opened museum near Solomons Pools which really IS a museum and is fabulous.

This was worth a visit just to see the beautiful embroidery and other crafted products. Don't come home without some example of their beautiful work.

Another unexpected treasure of Israel. To find the site believed to be the birthplace of jesus was an incredible experience. At no point did we feel unsafe even when crossing the Palestine border. A young soldier popped his head in our minibus and we waved our passports at him. One of the best trips ever.

Went to Bethlehem which is in the Palestinian heritage center in JUne 2012, went to various places there, very interesting especially churches where the birth place of Jesus Christ was located. Had to go with the tour group as i was coming from Jerusalem, there is a border control so you will need passport to cross over. Only thing that... More
