Top 3 Museums in Jerusalem

Israel Museum

The biggest and most important Museum in Israel.  The Museum is focusing on archaeology and art. And its goal is to show the material culture of the land thousands of years back.

One of the most important findings you could see here is the Dead Sea Scrolls.
You could see also a model of the second Jewish Temple.

On the art section, you have a sculpture garden, paintings, and modern art sections.

Tower Of David Museum

The best Museum to understand the history of Jerusalem.

Located in a small fortress inside the old city.

Yad Vashem

The biggest Holocaust research institute in the world. You might have been in Holocaust museums before but this one is special. It’s more than just numbers and historical facts. It gives you an image to the life of the Jews in Europe before the war, gives you names, faces and recorded interviews. It shows you how this whole world collapsed and disappeared.
You can easily spend here a whole day here and even more, there is so much information and aspects to explore.

The monuments outside of the historical museum

Outside of the historic museum, there are few monuments. have a walk around and see the monuments and the garden around. some of them are really impressive. visit the child’s memorial “Yad layeled”. It’s a big room full of mirrors and in the middle, there are 5 candles. The candles reflect in the mirrors all around you and give you the feeling you are walking in space between stars.

I recommend you to plan 1 hour at the end of the historical museum to walk around the gardens and monuments.

Righteous Among the Nations trees

Each of the trees in Yad Vashem was planned by or in an honor of a person who helped saving Jews during the holocaust.
