A great collection from the sacred places of the Holy Land
Feb 2020
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.

The best place to know the history of the Old City
Jan 2020
In the Flagellation Monastery along the Via Dolorosa the Franciscan Fathers manage the oldest museum in Jerusalem. There are at the moment two sections installed in the oldest part of the building, including remains dated back to Herodian, Roman, Byzantine and Early Islamic periods.

A great museum at the start of the Via Dolorosa
May 2019
This is a great museum at the start of the Via Dolorosa as it is situated at the First Station of the Cross; the Monastery of the Flagellation, which is associated with the Antonia Tower and Pontius Pilate's residence, where Jesus was tried, flogged and sentenced to death. Inside the Museum is the history of both Jerusalem during the Roman period and the beginnings of Christianity whilst outside there are pictures of Lous de Clerq's Stations of the Cross dated 1860.

Very worthwhile museum to visit on the Via Dolorosa
Apr 2019 • Solo
A lot of people walking the Via Dolorosa seem to be in guided tour parties shuffling along after each other but if you are on your own or can return this small museum is definitely worthwhile. Modern and informative presentation (seems like it is expanding soon too) of underground ruins and archaeological finds, and next door an excellent multimedia presentation in a room including walls from the Antonia Fortress. An additional tip: the inexpensive booklet they sell to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre was far and away the most helpful information guide I found to that confusing building.

Great Museum
Jan 2019 • Friends
I visited the Museum several times in the last months and I enjoyed its beauty and archeological collection. The warm people who welcomed me were friendly.

Most of all, I really appreciated the multimedia section which shows how Jerusalem developed through its long history. I wish many visitors to come and find the time to discover this corner of the city!

A must see!
Jan 2019 • Couples
If you go to Jerusalem, you must visit this museum! In the multimedia part, you're immersed in an environment of lights, sounds, ambient noise, stories and animations. It only takes 15 minutes to visit it and will give you a short but very clear overview on the history of the Holy City (and it's really not expensive).
The archaeological part is also very interesting even if it is not completely finished. A must see.
