We only had two hours, and this could have been a day. We walked through the model of the Jerusalem, and presentation of Qumran dead sea scrolls, taken in a video, and a carefully controlled presentation of artifacts. Artwork, history, and so much to see!

The Israel Museum offers a unique experience that combines the museum itself, a model of Jerusalem during 2nd temple era and a fascinating exhibition of the Dead Sea scrolls.

SO much to see! The docents were the most helpful we encountered anywhere. Highlights: the Aleppo Codex; amulets with Birkas Cohanim, about 600 years older than the Qumram scrolls, the oldest extant artifact verses of Bible.
