“A great exhibition!Herod!”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

The Israel museum is a great place to get some background information about the archaeology and culture of the country. About a month ago I went again on a guided tour of an exhibition in the museum "Herod..." and really enjoyed it. It was interesting and kept my attention the entire time. The multimedia presentations of the ancient buildings was especially helpful to understand the ancient architecture. It's a must see!

Reviewed August 15, 2013

#1 tip: We came at noon - parking near enterance was available, and museum was not a crowded as expected (summer, weekend, kids free...). passage to external displays even bearable on hot days...
#2 tip: tour for kids - not a must.... I would pass....

“Do Not Miss The Herod Exhibition”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

This exhibition is a must see. Great artifacts from Herod's various palaces, and computer recreations of what they looked like. Add to that Herod's tomb and it is a fantastic way to spend an afternoon.

“Wonderful, so much to see”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

Saw special Herod's exhibition. Try and see it, hard to believe that so much of actual archeological finds are here. Well worth having the free tour, come early and sign up.
