This is a small, fascinating museum in Jerusalem. It displays two collections – several rooms illustrating the development of Islamic art and one room of watches and clocks. The Islamic art rooms contain some stunningly beautiful pieces and provide a very clear and informative outline of the development of Islamic Art. The room of watches and clocks are from the famous collection of David Lionel Salomons – most of which were stolen 30 years ago and only recovered fairly recently - and provides a clear history of the development of time keeping, as well as displaying some very beautiful examples. Both the Islamic art and the watches are beautifully displayed in a way that is genuinely informative. The Museum itself was founded to cultivate mutual understanding between Jews and Arabs in the region and admirably succeeds in its purpose.
