Israel Museum high-lights

star-5
The Israel Museum is Israel largest encyclopedic museum. One can easily get lost there for hours. I know your time is limited and precious when visiting Jerusalem. So, I've crafted a tour in the museum that hits all the 'must see' exhibits. All the findings and references your guides will be talking about while traveling through Israel are here, on display. Through the exhibit we will rediscover the Biblical narrative in the context of the material culture and lives in the Land and surrounding territories. Some burning questions will be answered, the Bible will come alive. A story you know so well, like you've never heard it before.
