At the southern fringe of Rehavia, close to the Presidential Palace, the LA Mayer Museum for Islamic Art showcases art from Islamic cultures from Spain to India. The museum and research centre, completed in 1974, was founded as a way to bridge the cultural divide between Jews and their Arab neighbours. Exhibits include jewellery, carpets, brassware, glasswork and paintings; there are guided tours in English upon request (call ahead).
