Jerusalem Museums

Visiting Israel is always a wonderful idea. You’ll want to see as many historic sites as you can while you are there, and specifically in the holy city of Jerusalem. Jerusalem packs a huge punch in the tourist department – from ancient architecture to modern structures. But the Jerusalem museums are don’t-miss outings. Here are my favorites.

YAD VASHEM

For a somber, but meaningful day, step into the world’s foremost Holocaust museum. This museum is free of charge, but leave your phone and bag in a locker because you will not be permitted to bring it in. Also, as the photographs and subject matter can be quite graphic, this museum is only intended for people over the age of 10.

Every budget-savvy travelers loves a good street food destination, and Jerusalem is one of the best. From classic vegetable stalls to fragrant falafel stands, here’s what you should order for affordable eats when you’re in the city.

1. Falafel Chances are, you’ve had an encounter with this staple. Just in case you haven’t, we love the way Upgrd.com’s Rocky Horan describes the falafel experience: “Your palate will be overwhelmed by the flavors of garlic, cumin, coriander, and chick peas all coming together. Don’t be scared by the green look of the inner falafel — as that’s just the extra cilantro and parsley that causes it to turn green.” Wash it down with made-to-order fresh pomegranate juice, usually for just 7 Israeli shekels ($2 USD), and you’ll create a healthy, high-antioxidant feast for less than $5.
