This is an opportunity to visit our special exhibition, “Yemen: From Sheba to Jerusalem,” that had opened only shortly before the coronavirus outbreak, and enjoy an enchanting visit to one of the most remote Bible lands. The exhibition presents the culture of ancient South Arabia (Yemen) – the source of the precious resins of frankincense and myrrh that reached the Land of Israel and the neighboring lands via the famous incense route. The rich and fascinating culture of Ancient South Arabia gave rise to the biblical story about the Queen of Sheba.
