There will be guided tours at this museum which was built around the homes of priests from the Second Temple period. The six homes, which were uncovered during excavations at the end of the 1960s, were built on the slope of a hill that looks out at the Temple Mount. Apparently two-story structures when first built, the homes were occupied by Jerusalem`s aristocracy. They were constructed in a Hellenist-Roman style that was prevalent in that period. Even though the cellars are the only sections which have survived, they attest to the comfortable financial position of the occupants and afford a glimpse of their lifestyle during those times.
At 11:30, there will be a lecture in the auditorium by the archaeologist Dr. Hillel Geva, who took part in the Jewish Quarter excavations.
