Museums In Safed

No trip to any city would be complete without at least one or two museum visits. A Safed trip should be no different. Take a break from strolling down the back alleys of the Old City and enjoy some of the historical museums Safed has to offer.

Beit Hameiri-Hameiri House

The Hameiri House is a historical museum that documents Jewish life in Safed from the last two hundred years. Each floor of the museum represents a different activity in the life of Jewish community of Safed and daily life activities and family dwellings have been recreated to allow visitors an authentic glimpse into the past. The museum is housed among archeological ruins and these historic sites can be viewed from within the museum. Check out our article on this must see site and find out more about this wonderful little museum.

Rosenfeld Doll Museum

Safed's Doll Museum was created by Mila Rosenfeld and provides exhibitions on Jewish and European costume as well as folklore scenes. All the costumes are hand created and are historically based and are lovingly displayed on porcelain doll models. Take a glimpse into the fashion past and enjoy a museum that will be fun for the whole family.
