Bible Lands Museum, Jerusalem: 4 reviews and 3 photos

Opposite the Israel Museum is the Bible Lands Museum. While covering what should be an extremely fascinating period, this potentially excellent museum is let down a little by a lack of good presentation. It still should not be missed, because it has some amazing exhibits, and is good compared to many museums. I'd recommend visiting here before the Israel Museum, because that will likely spoil you, like it did me, and leave you less amazed by what should be an amazing museum.

The exhibits cover everything to do with the lands of the Bible, from the first recorded history, to the recent past. It's all laid out in a very easily manageable path, and a very compact space, and should make a visit possible in a couple of hours. That will leave you the rest of the day for the Israel Museum, and maybe a walk in the park afterwards.

Entry costs 32 NIS.
