Museum
嘎兰If you want to learn more about the past and present of Israel, it is recommended to go to the Israel Museum first, set aside half a day or even a day, and then visit the ancient city, it can be said that it is a clear memory. I happened to visit the museum with a class of military academy students, and there was a little surging in my heart~ The archaeological museum, Jewish art life museum, contemporary art, including outdoor art garden, 1/50 models of Jerusalem from the Second Temple period are exquisite and rich in collections. The most important town hall area is the Dead Sea Scrolls area, where the original, oldest and most complete Bible manuscripts are preserved.
