Museums And Culture
Museum on the Seam – where fine art meets good coffee and great view.
In the heart of Jerusalem, on the meeting point between east and west, past and present, and three religions, resides the Museum on the Seam.
The Museum, which was chosen by the New York Times as "one of the 29 most impressive art institutions in the world", uses contemporary art as a language with no boundaries in order to raise and respond to social issues found in the public discussion, while emphasizing what we all have in common rather than what keeps us apart.
At the center of the changing exhibitions in the Museum stand the national, ethnic, religious and economic seam lines in their local and universal contexts.
The Museum's rooftop offers a 360 degrees' lookout, observing Jerusalem's most beautiful view and its colorful neighborhoods, as well as a coffee shop, art books and a shared working space (hub).
