You really need to be interested in this era to enjoy this site. Nice videos to watch. A bit limited but I think they are renovating to improve it

As most attractions in the old city are going back hundreds or thousands or years.. this goes back less than 100 and gives a different perspective on life pre 1948

This small museum gives a good indication of live in the old Jewish quarter. Many of the explanations are in Hebrew but there is a general explanation of each room in English and the rest is quite self-explanatory. Worth seeing.
