New Mosaic Museum Opens in Jerusalem

June 26, 2009 By: Jena Tesse Fox


The Museum of the Good Samaritan, one of the world's largest mosaic museums, opened to the public this month in the Judean Desert near Jerusalem.

Located on the main highway between Jerusalem and Jericho, the Museum rests near the site of the inn mentioned in the New Testament's parable of the good Samaritan. It is identified with the biblical town of Ma'ale Adumim and displays mosaics and artifacts discovered throughout Israel.

The museum also features an open-air display of mosaics and archaeological findings from both Jewish and Samaritan synagogues and Christian churches, including cisterns and remnants from the reconstructed Good Samaritan Byzantine Church.
