This is a gem with the trip for those who like learning about culture and society. The artifacts and labels contain information about Palestinian objects of everyday life in the early and mid 20th century. A great collection of embroidery, pottery and artifacts of daily life. Visitors will also learn about the effects of Deir Yassin massacre and orphan resettlement led by the museum’s founder. It packs a great deal into a small space. Worth a one hour visit to learn a history less apparent in other parts of Jerusalem.

Located in a complex which also houses a school, the museum entrance is a little hard to find, but the visitor who perseveres is rewarded with a diverse selection including costume, ceramics, jewellery, homewares, tools and a thorough historical overview of Palestinian culture. Well worth the short walk from the Garden Tomb or Rockefeller Center.

We were pleased to have fitted in this visit on our last morning in Jerusalem. The museum itself has an interesting history, originating in a school established for orphans from the Deir Yassin massacre. There main emphasis is everyday life in Palestine, including agriculture and various domestic artefacts, and a collection of the tradidtional costumes with their fine and regionally distinctive embroidery. There is also a video installation about the history of the musem and its founder, and a map of destroyed and cleared Palestinian villages in Israel itself. The museum is easily located in the school campus next to the American Colony Hotel.
