Fodor's Review

This museum's octagonal white stone tower is an East Jerusalem landmark. Built in the 1930s, it has echoing stone halls and somewhat old-fashioned displays that recall the period of the British Mandate. Among the most important exhibits are cultic masks from Neolithic Jericho, ivories from Bronze-Age Megiddo, the famous Israelite "Lachish Letters" (6th century BC), Herodian inscriptions, and decorative reliefs from the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. This branch of the Israel Museum has some parking on Saturday only. For winter visitors, note that the buildings have no heating.
