This is an interesting, interactive museum, with tour lead by a tour guide. It is the story of non-Jewish people who were strong advocates of a Jewish homeland. These are often forgotten by the pages of history and very few other places remind us of...More

The Friends of Zion Museum is centrally located in the heart of Jerusalem. It tells the story of the many Christians who were instrumental in the creation of the Jewish State (like British Army General Orde Wingate). Well done and entertaining.

This Museum should be on every tour guide's list. They did an impeccable job of explaining the history and highlighting the beauty of Israel. We visited the museum on our final day in Jerusalem. This was a perfect way to summarize our tour.
