Kelsey has some nice artifacts that are displayed in a traditional way. There's no cutting edge curation here, but it's a pleasant way to kill an hour.

This museum has recently been renovated and greatly enlarged. The docents give wonderful tours.

Finds from the university excavations in the Levant (Egypt, Israel, etc) mainly from the 1st half of the 20 century. Nice exhibition, not too big (nor too small). My family enjoyed it, and I - as proffesional archaeologist - even more. Do not forget to try the drawers below the vitrines: sometimes there are further great finds, that are not indicated from outside....

An amazing amount of material in a small place. The new addition really improves it. Not so overwhelming as a large museum
