Israel Museum, Jerusalem Overview

Regarded as one of the top ten museums in the world, this site demands a must visit.

The museum has an impressive art collection and incredible antiques. It is a short walk north of the Old City's Jaffa Gate. The Shrine of the Book building displays Israel's portion of the Dead Sea Scrolls (the rest of the scrolls are displayed in Amman's Citadel Hill Museum, Jordan) which were unearthed in the 1940s in a Judean desert cave, overlooking the Dead Sea. The Jewish Art and Life wing houses an alluring display of Jewish art and representations of Jewish life. One of the prized exhibits are the reconstructed Synanagogues from different parts of the world. The Archaelogical wing showcases the most extensive collection of biblical and Holy Land archaelogy in the world, organised chronologically. The Art Wing boasts of artwork by several Israeli painters, as well as works of Monet, Renoir, Sisley and Cezanne.
