What travellers are saying
- My husband and I enjoyed visiting the museum. We took the archeology tour with Michael. He taught us so much!

- 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!Written 24 January 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.

- In the center of Jerusalem it is possible to find a quiet place with a great museum and a restaurant.
It was the home of Anna Ticho and her husband a known eye doctor.
It was good that the place was kept and not converted in the high rising buildings as many in the area.
Even the garden was saved and the gallery as part of the Israel Museum has a permanent exhibition and also temporary exhibits of Israel artist.
The resturant was located in a upper floor, mainly of italian food.
It is also a coffee place to enjoy at all time.
It is possible also to have small group celebrations in a separate room.
The elevator to get to the third floor is small and not always work what is a problem for elderly people. It should be consider to fix it.Written 13 November 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.

- Very unique museum.
On one side of the museum is the Jewish Mea Shearim neighborhood and across the road - East Jerusalem. The building itself retains its uniqueness in the area.
We had a guided tour. Very interesting, especially the Metropolis exhibition - well shown.Written 5 September 2020This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- My husband and I were thrilled to find a piece of artwork that would make the perfect gift for our daughter, a painting of the Tree of Life with gold leaf included at no extra cost! It is now framed and will hold a place of honor for years to come.
We also purchased a blessing on parchment for our son's business, which has been complimented by many already.
Azriel Gess, the talented creator of each masterpiece, was overflowing with depth and knowledge about the significance of each line and brushstroke.
His kindness and hospitality were most welcome.
On our next trip to the Holy Land, we will be sure to spend more time at the Museum of Psalms looking for our next "one of a kind" gift .
Many thanks to Azriel Gess for his talent!Written 30 July 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- This museum built in 2010 is a lovely quiet spot. The permanent exhibit displays some of the vast work of Israeli artist Moshe Castel born in Jerusalem in 1909. One can see his evolution as an artist. There are also temporary exhibits which, at this time displayed works of students and living Israeli artists, all quite beautiful. There is nice gift shop where one can purchase lithographs and more. There is a modest entrance fee, well worth it. Great views from the road in Maale Adumim. Have a bite to eat after, at the adjacent Waffle Bar.Written 2 January 2020This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- Originally built 1906 as the BEZALEL School of art later on the Bezalel Museum sINCE 1965 Turned to the club and house of Jerusalem artists
Changing exhibitions An annual Bianela and very good restaurantWritten 5 July 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- This is a gem with the trip for those who like learning about culture and society. The artifacts and labels contain information about Palestinian objects of everyday life in the early and mid 20th century. A great collection of embroidery, pottery and artifacts of daily life. Visitors will also learn about the effects of Deir Yassin massacre and orphan resettlement led by the museum’s founder. It packs a great deal into a small space. Worth a one hour visit to learn a history less apparent in other parts of Jerusalem.Written 18 March 2018This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- I have been visiting & buying from this wonderful art co-op since 1995. I absolutely love this place. The artists take turns in running the shop daily & it's so fun meeting the artists whose work I am purchasing. I love how they showcase a different artist in the shop window periodically. I just purchased some pottery pieces while I was there & love all of it. Highly recommend this lovely shop on my favorite city street!Written 19 July 2016This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- Great energy super colorful modern and unique art. A place that relax and make you fill I'm a different world.Written 19 September 2013This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- In and of itself the Kings Art Gallery is not a place I am tempted to spend any money. Not because I do not like the paintings on offer, but because they are far beyond my limited means. It is like visiting a free National Gallery !
On any given trip I may pop into this wonderful shop several times just to gaze at the varied works of art and chat with the friendly owner. Many famous names are represented here and the owner is more than pleased to show you works which may already have been sold, but which he knows you would like to see anyway.
The street it is on, Shlomzion Hamalcha Street, is filled with several other galleries, craft shops and antique stores. A silversmith here made the mezuzahs for the recently opened Waldorf Astoria Hotel. There is even the Lebanese restaurant where the late King Hussein used to entertain important guests with many evocative photographs on its walls.
I frequently get there by taking the Mamilla Mall upon exiting Jaffa Gate and desecending the plaza stairs. At the end just before the King David Street intersection I take the stairs to my right, up through some old arches and cross the street at the lights here by a convenience store. One can now work one's way up Shlomzion Hamalcha Street.
The Ludwig Mayer bookshop is another spot which gets lots of attention and a fair amount of my limited budget.
Eventually one comes up to the Intersection with Jaffa road where one is just a couple of blocks from Zion Square and Ben Yehuda pedestrian Mall.
If however one has chosen to exit the mall at the King David Street intersection; upon crossing you would notice the old Moslem cemetery and across from it the recently opened Waldorf Astoria Hotel (well worth a peek inside). Continuing up this street, Gershon Agron, will get you to Independence Park where it is possible to sit on the grass and relax.
Here one can dream about the works of art one is going to buy at the King's Art Gallery some day !Written 29 September 2015This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- the museum, on a hill top in W Jerusalem, a stone throw's away from the ancient monastery of the cross,opposite the Knesset ad other (less imposing government) buildings, next to the Hebrew U , is worth the visit because of the art treasures, the exhibitions, the sculptures (don't miss the one of Anish Kapur) in the garden and the museum, the scroll of the book (the Qumran scrolls) and its architecture.
It is large and could se sme advice in providing directions inside.
It has a serious children and youth wing.Written 9 June 2021This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
