Wall Museum

The “Wall Museum”

Background story

Once the area around Rachel’s Tomb, a pilgrimage place for Moslems, Christians and Jews, was one of the liveliest in Bethlehem. The Hebron Road connected Jerusalem with Bethlehem, and its northern section was in fact the busiest street in town.



Sponsor a Wall Poster in Bethlehem

Help to expand the museum

We invite you to sponsor a large poster with a human Palestinian story to be attached on the Wall in Bethlehem.  Already 100 posters bring out the stories of Palestinian life and challenge the restrictions under occupation. This “Wall Museum” will be expanded and will present many new Palestinian voices to the world.
