Hebrew Music Museum

The Hebrew Music Museum is new and wonderful.

Entry is on Yoel Moshe Salomen, the narrow pedestrian street off Kikar Tsion, which used to be restaurant row and is still worth a walk down. The museum is part of the developing Kikar HaMusika complex.

It is larger than I expected. Although some exhibits do discuss ties to Jewish music, the museum is really about musical instruments, particularly from eastern lands. Your ticket gets you earphones and a tablet. Get the tablet's camera to catch each exhibit's barcode label. You'll see info. Click on the arrow and you'll hear the instrument.

The museum includes an impressive VR of the second temple.
