I first went a few(probably 10+) years back and remember feeling blown away by the ability to blend High art concepts with modern issues. I went again today and enjoyed my couple hours visit (though I could see someone not into art absolutely hating the visit). The museum seemed to need a bit of upkeep as several of the video... More

A small modern art museum that borders the eastern city. It is very small - an hour is definitely enough time to see the current exhibitions. If you're an art lover, it's worth the visit.

If you have a couple of hours to spare in Jerusalem, I'd recommend this small but peculiar museum. It is located in a fine building built in the 1930s, that between 1948 and 1967 served as an Israeli military outpost on the border between Israel and Jordan - therefore "on the seam". Today it is on the seam between Jewish... More

A historical place (old frontline between Israel and Jordan) with political exhibitions. Nice view from the roof. Worth a visit when you have some more days in Jerusalem. Entrance fee is 30 shekel (25 for students).

Very interesting contemporary art museum, located on the seam between Orthodox Jewish neighborhoods and east Jerusalem. Easy access with the light rail right in front of the museum. Don't miss the panorama from the roof top. You might want to consider buying a combined ticket to this and other 4 small museums in the city - we visited 4 of... More

The current exhibition is about leaders and the people - the relations between these two groups. It's an independent modern art museum. The was it is preserved reflects its history as a border line between Israel and Jordan prior to the six day war, and its curator relates to the neighboring Arab area, anti-zionist ultra orthdox neighborhood of Me'a She'arim,...

This museum is a jewel just outside the Old City Walls, the Seam Museum lays right on the light rail system, a mere two stops from the Damascus Gate. Historic because of its location on the Green Line in pre-1967 Jerusalem, this battle scared villa houses some of the best contemporary art from the people of this embattled land, and... More

We noticed this museum because of the large "The Revolution Is Not Over" sign on the front, and upon learning what was inside decided to visit. The current exhibition, "And the Trees Went Forth to Seek a King" is highly recommended because of it's timely and necessary message, that is so poignantly displayed in very effective formats (like how it...
