“So much history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2014

It's a stunning place and a must see. The dome of the book holds the Dead Sea Scrolls and the statues are awesome and iconic.

The miniature of the city and how it evolved is amazing too.

This isn't a very interactive place. If you are bored easily it's not for you but if you love history and want to get a feel for Israel and the history, check it out. I could spend hours and hours wandering through.

“World class museum!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2014

We loved the Israel museum and enjoyed walking around the gorgeous sculpture garden, the amazing exhibit on Herod the great and also the more contemporary Escher exhibit. The Herod exhibit helped bring together some of the history for the kids and it was so well done.

“Visual Overview of City History”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2014

Very nice way to get an overview of how the city evolved through the ages. I believe it is critical to have a good guide to explain all the historic facets.
