Jerusalem has historical and religious significance to Christians, Jews and Muslims, and all are represented within its walls. <br>We take you to an incredible view of the tomb of King David, Via Dolorosa,Church of the Sepulcher, Western Wall, Byzantine Cardo and Arab Shuk.<br><br>The Church of the Holy Sepulcher is that where Jesus Christ is believed to have been resurrected. Besides its religious importance, the church is also a stunning example of craftsmanship, with beautiful mosaics and architecture.<br><br>Jerusalem’s Old City and Bethlehem is also worth a visit, the famous holy sites found within the center of this ancient city, such as the Church of Nativity.<br><br>Continue to the Dead Sea for time to relax in the muds and float in these special waters which have perplexed mankind for thousands of years.

Incredibly rich art and installations. Highly recommend going in the hours of the morning and in the early afternoon sun grabbing an ice cream around the corner at Mousseline! Wonderful art and it highlights the complexities of a multi-cultural rich Islamic history in Palestine.

We visited the museum yesterday and were shown around by an extremely knowledgable guide. We learned many things previously completely unknown to us about the Islam, about the Arab world, the Turks, the Berbers, the Armenians. We learned some of the history of Islam, the meaning of Hadj, the life of Mohamed. Many beautiful artefacts, some of them very old and well preserved. Very much worthwhile!

Last saturday it was possible to visit the museum and get explanation of the various exhibitions. We saw the exhibition of jewelry from various countries as Iran, India and more. The interesting part was that many modern artist made pieces inspired in the old work with a personal view. It was a very interesting presentation. The museum has to be visited many times to see all what it is exhibit.

An impressive collection of Islamic art makes for a nice diversion in West Jerusalem, and also makes for a nice break from the tourist circuit, as most of the visitors seem to be locals and not foreign tourists. The clock and watch exhibit is quite spectacular, but of course these are all European made and have little to do with Islam--they just happen to have been collected by the museum's benefactor. But this makes for a nice air-conditioned stop and feels somewhat different than most of the stops on the Typical Jerusalem tourist map.
