My wife and I recently this museum to see the Dead Sea scrolls. Outside the museum they displayed a 1:50 scale reproduction of what Jerusalem looked like about 2,000 years ago. Well worth a visit!

Lots to see, my favorites were Dead Sea Scrolls and ... lots of the rest. Surprises were the African items (I've lived in East and West Africa, the items were very good) and Jewish Cultural dress items. Hadrian was a nice surprise too. Very good...More

The Isreal museum has an extensive collection. The highlight for me was seeing the Dead Sea scrolls. The museum also has the scale model of Jerusalem in the second temple period. There is an outdoor display of contemporary sculptures that were interesting.

At least 3-4 hours needed to see all the main areas of Jerusalem Museum. Lovely to spend a whole day there and see the Scroll of the Book displays too plus a lovely walk in the art garden. Superb.

Most people don't think of visiting a Museum on a vacation in a place like Israel, and much less a city like Jerusalem. This place is amazing, but you should REALLY hire a guide to take you through it. Otherwise, you will just be looking...More

There are special exhibitions and activity places designed for children. It changes from time to time, so you should look at the museum site for what is now available for children (of all ages).
