  • Big beautiful museum with all cind of expositions. From old Egypt to the modern art. Nice restaurant as bonus
  • The Israel Museum in Jerusalem is a great experience to visit. Huge place with a lot of exhibitions. I highly recommend to visit the Shrine of the book where you can find a significant exhibition of The Dead Sea Scrolls and Qumram.
