Shrine of the Book and the Israel Museum

This is the Shrine of the Book which features pieces of the Dead Sea Scrolls. In all honesty, it was somewhat disappointing because I've actually seen more bits of them here in the U.S. But the building itself is pretty impressive.

The highlight of our visit to the Israel Museum was the large scale model of 1st Century Jerusalem. The first picture is of the Holy of Holies in the temple.

Did you see Klaatu or Gort come walking out of the Shrine of the Book?
