Surprised there is no hype since there is a fabulous Exhibit of Picasso drawings, mostly sketches. In a few lines he captures depth of life force . Other Exhibit to explore, The Mummies. And for kids a live maze to run through.

Take the (free) guided tours. The Museum offers several. In one we learned about the different religious practices in different Jewish communities by observing the original Synagogues that were brought into the Museum. And, of course, visit the Dead Sea Scrolls section. A huge history...More
