On Saturday the Old City will be open as usual, except for sites in the Jewish Quarter. The Israel Museum, the Bible Lands Museum, the David's Citadel Museum and the Museum of Islamic Art will be open as well. Check websites for Saturday hours.

Lots of places are open, but jus people watching and a day of rest with time to catch up can be reviving.
