The unique design of the building and display is fantastic. Best to arrive early to avoid crowds and enjoy the small space. The entire museum is well done.

We had never realized there were other sections of this museum to see artifacts. After you stroll through and view the scrolls, you must continue on to the other parts of the Israel Museum.

This is a one of a kind place to experience. I visited twice, five years apart. If you are a bible believer or someone interested in history don't miss this site. The Knesset is very close as a bonus.

Rotating samples of the Dead Sea Scrolls beautifully presented under a dome shaped like the top of the urns they were found in, including an almost complete copy of the entire book of Isaiah.

This is a one of a kind Shrine that houses the Dead Sea Scrolls. I love it here as it is well kept and guarded. It validates the scriptures by preserving those found at Qumran. A very cool archetecturally designed buidling.
