Samaritan Museum

Museum in Nablus

Members of an ancient religion closely related to Judaism, the Samaritans believe that Mt Gerizim was not only the first piece of land ever created but also that it's the location chosen by God for his Temple (while Jews believe this is Temple Mount in Jerusalem). Learn more about the Samaritan community at this excellent museum, where an English-speaking guide will show you a video and answer any questions you have about the site or the faith.
