Wohl Archeology Museum

For those who want to get an idea about the glory days of the wealthiest Quarter at the time of King Herod (the Herodian Quarter), it is recommended to visit this special archeological museum in Jerusalem, which is led to through an underground basement. The Wohl Archeology Museum is situated in fact inside an archeological site, one of the most important of its kind. The Wohl Archeology Museum includes the remains of houses from the residential neighborhood which served the wealthiest of the city, as well as its priests. The magnificence, richness and prestige are apparent still today, about two thousand years later. Three residential structures, characterized by a Roman-Hellenistic style, serve as the main exhibit at the Wohl Archeology Museum. They include beautiful mosaics, columns and capitals, a magnificent Menorah etching, oil lamps which were imported from Greece and more. Next to many of the rooms are found the remains of Mikvehs (Jewish ritual bath).
