It's mostly a shop with some ornaments to see. There's are some nice things around to look at but pretty pricey to buy anything. Worth a visit if you have some spare time.

A wide selection of largely local, hand-made products of various degrees of quality are on show in this emporium that seems to be patronised almost exclusively by coach parties on the 'Jerusalem/Bethlehem' circuit.

all Palestinian hand made, we met the owner of the shop, she's a great woman. The place sells products that was made by Palestinian mothers and sisters which support their families.

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.
