The museum is designed to give the visitor a glimpse of the world of the Bible. The exhibition highlights the relationship between the spiritual and physical worlds, following in the footsteps of man’s quest for the transcendental, and covers the initial stages of the monotheistic religions: Judaism and Christianity.

These objects were made, used and valued by people long ago. They were part of everyday life, were used in religious rituals and demonstrate the origins of communication.
The founder of this amazing Musem is Dr. Elie Borowski. Dr. Borowski leaves a legacy for future generations in the museum that he founded.
