While this museum has many interesting exhibits, it's not a first time must when travelling the city. If you have been to Jerusalem before, have extra time and it's near by or you just love art, and Jewish art in particular, you should check it out.

If you've gotten jaded with Jewish museums, try this one (and also the Museum of Italian Jewish Art on Hillel St.)
