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.

Hello reader. My name is Charlotte Noris and I am sure that you will definitely enjoy my blog. Do you know why? All because on the pages you will see bright and colorful photos, as well as useful information. My husband and I are freelancers, so we can travel at any time of the year.
For myself, I most often plan tours in advance, but it also happens that the trip turns out to be spontaneous when I see an interesting place and a nice price. At the age of 35, I have visited more than 30 countries and do not plan to stop there. I want to visit all continents and the most secret corners of our planet.
