When looking at Jerusalem activities, consider stopping by the Israel Museum. Well-known throughout the world for its abundance of artifacts, this museum will introduce you to the history of the region and the controversy surrounding the area. You can also visit the Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial, which many call one of the best memorials of its type in the world. Unlike other museums, which are only indoors, this museum has multiple areas where you can learn more about how the Holocaust affected Jewish people. Not only does it have an indoor museum, but it also has outdoor spaces and gardens.

As a tourist, you should also think about taking Jerusalem excursions and tours of the Old City of Jerusalem.
