Visitor Info

Directors Welcome


Dear Friends,

Allow me to be the first to welcome you to the Bible Lands Museum Jerusalem. It gives me great pleasure to invite you to this unique institution where history comes to life.
The Bible Lands Museum Jerusalem opened its doors to the public on May 1992, and has since earned international acclaim as a universal center for cultural and educational programming.

The Bible Lands Museum Jerusalem is a unique museum of ancient civilizations, presenting the history of the lands and civilizations mentioned in the Bible in relation to the development of the biblical narrative throughout the generations.

The goal of the Museum is to connect each individual with their own heritage through the treasures on display.  Welcoming  visitors of all faiths and nationalities, it brings the universal narrative of the development of civilization to audiences through exhibitions, educational and cultural programs.

I am pleased to present you with our website in English and Hebrew and hope you visit the museum and enjoy our permanent and special exhibitions, family fun programs, guided tours, lectures, and much more.
