General

On the west-eastern end of the archeological park, between the walls of the Umai 'palace number 3' an archeological museum was built. The museum is named after the Jewish-American philanthropist, William Davidson. He funded the construction of the museum, which exhibits many finding from different periods found in the archeological garden and its surroundings. The artifacts are exhibited in a chronological order beginning from the Second Temple period up to the Ottoman period. The museum also exhibits a miniature model of modern day Jerusalem, made out of metal. The uniqueness of the museum is in the virtual model exhibited in two closed screening rooms, in which we can see and learn about the structure of the Second Temple.
