I really liked the exhibit on Sigmund Freud and his fellowship of the ring. It is really worth taking one of the free tours, it was great to get a personal perspective. There is so much to see and each piece has a story.

There are 2 things you will definitely want to visit. First are the Dead Sea Scrolls. How can you not want to see them? The next is the large, outdoor model of the Old City of Jerusalem. Incredible. A must visit!

The place has a cafe that serves good food at reasonable price. Parking is free and the place is huge. Unless your interest is limited to just visiting few specific parts of the museum, I would say save at least 3 hours for this trip....More
