The Wohl Archeological Museum has taken advantage of the discovery of ruins of residences of the high priests, most probably Sadduces, from around the time of the destruction of the 2nd Temple and have created a fine display and well as a detailed model of the 'reconstructed' residence replete with well preserved mosaics, ritual baths and other interesting details. Well worth a visit when in the Old City.

A chance to see the remains of the city of Jerusalem at the 2nd temple era. The museum is not big , nice, and modern.

This museum is hidden in the Jewish Quarter. Upon entrance you go underground to view the remains of 3 homes from the Herodian period. These were most likely the homes of priests who worked in the temple, including Caiphas, who was high priest during the time of Jesus. You can see the remains of frescoes on some of the walls, several mikvaot, mosaics, and evidence of the fiery destruction that ended this period in Jerusalem. It shouldn't take you very long, but it worth a glimpse.
