The Museum on the Seam is rather small in size and number of exhibits, but it packs a punch as it questions normative Jewish practices and beliefs. I am still trying to figure out if I liked this museum and if I would recommend it...More

Interesting place with a clear message. Only issue I had with it was that a few times I felt as though they were forcing themselves to find conflict in Israel when it wasn't really there

The entrance door through WE sculpture is best exponate. Expected: re-unification historic museum, since name, location (old border) and door. Fact: entire rooms to female bleeding in judaism, female dress modesty in ritual bath at conversion to judaism, third temple fiction movie. Just a ripoff...More

Museum on the Seam is a small, 3 floor museum that mounts one exhibition at a time, all united by a common theme: liminality, borders, walls, transitions, tension between two distinct things that occupy the same space. The exhibits change every ~6 months; they might...More

LIke many such places in other cities as well, this is a small gem, off the beaten track and packs a punch. AS you approach it, you may walk by it. The building is ugly and nondescript. Once you enter, you will most likely be...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.
