    This memorial to the 6 million debunks any and all Holocaust deniers. This a "must see" for all who think they all there is to know about the Holocaust as well as those who know veryy little or nothing at all.

    Popped in here to see the light show on Saturday to find out the museum was free that day until 16:30. It is basically open ruins of king herod’s Jerusalem palace and great views of the city, though some of the stairs were challenging for my 70 yr old mom. It was an unexpected pleasure to meander through the ruins with very few people there!

    Skip the light show- it’s uninformative, and mildly artistic I guess, but not worth it in my opinion.

    Great experience. Wonderful presentation. Highly recommended.
    How Israel from its founding fathers, until today including the hard en dark ages.
    Surprised how Christians in the last century have treated the Jews and how they have empowered the rise of the nation in contradiction to the Middle Ages.

    an amazing collection of artifacts from the Middle East region, you have to take the museum guide in order to better understand the exhibit, and I like the Jerusalem in Babylon downstairs in the Museum.

    Ammunition Hill was a strategic Jordian stronghold guarding the northern approach to the Old City. In the morning hours of 6 June 1967, Israeli paratroopers fought a series of fierce close-combat battles with the equally brave and determined Jordian defenders as they worked their way along the trench positions, clearing bunker after bunker, and finally overran this base after a four-hour see-saw battle. Much of the defensive system is well preserved. On the grounds are four vehicles including a Sherman tank and a half-track. The Museum presents the stages of the Battle for Jerusalem in a surreal manner. An excellent site to visit.

    The Center is well laid-out and easy to navigate with earphone sets that allow you to learn the history of this great man. You learn that he was truly a man of the people.

    The unique design of the building and display is fantastic. Best to arrive early to avoid crowds and enjoy the small space. The entire museum is well done.

    Traduitionally, this is the place where Pilate presented Jesus to the people with the words "Ecce Homo" ["Behold the Man"]. Right at the beginning of the Via Dolorosa, the Ecce Homo arch spans the route. When the entire arch was exposed, prior to the building of the Convent, it was found that the arch was, in fact, part of a triple arch. The arch spanning the Via Dolorosa is probably the victory arch built by the Emperor Hadrian in 135AD. The other two arches have been incorporated into the Church of Ecce Homo, the third arch framing the altar.

    The museum is dedicated to display Islam countries culture and history via artifacts. Those were gathered far countries like Iran, Uzbekistan, Yemen, Morocco and more. We had a guided tour on the connection between Islam. Judaism, and Christianity via the displays. It was a little too long, but very interesting. Among the displays were magnificent jewelry of Jewish women from Yemen and Morocco. WE also dedicated time to view the fabulous collection of ancient watches. This collection is a must see!

    An old museum that is structurally beautiful. Old fashioned display cabinets with interesting relics and information on excavations completed in the early 1900's. Not crowded and an easy loop around the museum to see all the displays. Good use of an hour of time.

    The museum, is open in part, the multimedia section presents a very exciting immersive installation that traces the entire history of the city. Very recommended for those who want an introduction to the complex history of Jerusalem.
