OAT Israel: Israel Museum

The Israel Museum was founded in 1965 and contains many fine artifacts and exhibits, but only two interested me:
  The first was the outdoors Second Temple Period Model of Jerusalem before the Romans destroyed the city in 66 CE.
The second was the Shrine of the Book which houses the Dead Sea Scrolls and other artifacts discovered in Qumran.
