    Besides the draw of the building itself, Zahran is a uniquely inviting character who will make any visit to Ramallah memorable. You are free to go inside and chat with him, and he may make you tea or offer you some food.

    He tried very hard to help a Korean friend of mine in understanding how to navigate through Palestine despite the language barrier, and I had a long chat learning from him regarding the local history and culture.

    The house itself has been turned into a bit of an art exhibition, showcasing pieces done by refugees. All around it is a very cool place.

    Museum does a great job in laying out the history of the PLO and Palestinian cause, displaying a lot of events with accompanying evidence regarding past Israeli transgressions and the international relationship with Yasser Arafat. From an observer standpoint obviously they will have their own biases throughout, but very worth to see the perspective.

    Additionally it was very cool to be able to see the bunker in which he hid in during the encirclement of this compound by Israeli forces.

    Intimate Terrains is a masterfully curated exhibition of powerful, professionally executed, and exceptionally expressive work that reveals more of the Palestinian story and culture than any newspaper story or textbook will ever convey. The trauma, indignation, pride, and fury of an occupied, oppressed, and abused population is palpable. In the light-filled, intimate galleries, it was personal and powerful. I hope it is possible for the Museum to tour the show; it needs to be experienced by a wide audience. Most of the western world only hears one side of the story.

    The Museum itself is impressive - a contemporary LEED building that integrates seamlessly with the terraced hillsides of of the area. We arrived late in the day and unfortunately just barely had time to view the exhibition and left without touring the entire building and surrounding gardens. I will make a point of returning and spending time exploring the grounds, other programs, and the adjacent university.
