The Bible Lands Museum Jerusalem tells the story of humanity through a unique collection of rare artefacts from the lands of the ancient Near East – the Bible Lands.

Ancient ceramics, exquisite hand-crafted jewelry, artworks from the distant past, sculptures of extraordinary beauty, frescoes, and other priceless treasures are displayed throughout 20 galleries and special exhibition spaces. Visitors are drawn into intimate encounters with the cultures that formed the foundations of the Western world – ancient Egypt, Babylon, Canaan, Assyria, Sumer, Persia, Greece and Rome.

The Museum hosts a rich calendar of temporary exhibits, cultural events, tours, lectures and experiences which offer unique glimpses into the worlds inhabited by the men and women of the Near East in Biblical times.

The Museum was founded by Dr. Elie and Batya Borowski, whose vision was to establish a cultural and educational institution that would provide an experience centered on the study of human history and its development, connecting visitors to their own roots and culture.
As Dr. Elie Borowski himself said: “The future of mankind has his roots in the past – only through understanding our history we can build a better future.”

Since opening in May 1992, the Bible Lands Museum Jerusalem has become an important universal center, offering a variety of special exhibitions, educational programs, cultural events, tours and lectures, as well as hosting professional conferences, seminars and private events throughout the years.
You are invited to visit the museum, tread the paths of great nations of the past, discover ancient cultures and distant lands, and connect to the region’s magnificent history.
