I have been to Jerusalem around 10 times on visits and work and this was the first time I got to this site - very interesting and a very short walk from the Old city. The site was a central prison during the British Mandate and the story of the building and the prisoners is told through exhibits in the various rooms: the prison cells, the escape room( look out for interesting messages and symbols engraved in some of the floor tiles), the synagogue cell, the solitary confinement cells. When we were there we did not see anyone else in the museum which was a shame as it is very well set out and curated. As before, it is probably not a site to visit if you only have a short time in the city (as there is so much to see) but very interesting if you are interested in history from the Mandate period.
