The Bible Lands Museum is amazingly the life-long collection of a single man, Elie Borowski who established this museum in Jerusalem and thus enabled thousands upon thousands of locals and visitors to enjoy this magical journey of Biblical heritage.
The open-design of the museum makes the visit very comfortable and pleasant, with each airy gallery exploring different aspects of Biblical heritage and the Bible lands. Quotes from the Scriptures that are peppered around the museum help visitors understand how biblical characters and the land of Israel are deeply rooted in the myriad cultures and faiths that spread out over the ancient Middle East.
A visit to this magnificent museum leaves one with an understanding of how the Bible has influenced Western civilization and world events at large. There are enrichment programs and special programs held at the museum as well as Saturday-night concerts.
