I enjoyed visiting this museum and getting a fresh and new perspective on many of my favorite Biblical stories. Biblical ideas that I took for granted many years changed when I visited the museum. The guides are amazing!

The Middle East since the dawn of civilization has been a source of religion, economics, culture and much, much more for the whole world. An excellent presentation of religion, customs and cultures from antiquity to recent times with countless wonderful artifacts.
