The museum is located in a 500-year-old building in the Jewish Quarter and is one of two ancient courtyard homes that are still intact there. The museum portrays how people lived in the Old Yishuv in Jerusalem prior to the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948 and features a number of permanent and temporary exhibitions.
The following exhibitions are currently on display: Kohelet – paper cuts by the artist Naftali Mazaki; Moshav Zekanim – the story of Jerusalem’s elderly population between 1840 and 1948; and To Be a Child in the Land of Israel – an exhibition of board games from the 1940’s. There will be a guided tour at 11:00.
The museum is not wheelchair accessible. Entry to the museum is contingent on presenting a Green Pass and wearing a mask.
