The masterpiece of this small museum are definitly some of the scrolls found in 1952 in the Qumran caves close to the Death Sea.
They included early copy of the Christian Bible.
The copper scrolls exhibited here are describing several hidden treasures.
I was so surprised to find such a famous thing in this tiny museum without hardly any security or protection.
I can hardly believe they were original, I will have to check...
