Samaritan Museum

The Samaritan Museum is a very special place to visit. It gives you a great insight into the history, culture and traditions of the denomination of the Samaritans. The Samaritans are a minority ethnic community who are followers of an ancient religion, which is close to Judaism. They believe that Mount Gerizim was the first piece of land which was created by God and that this mountain is chosen by God for his holy temple. In the past the Samaritans were oppressed as a minority and suffered a lot persecution until they almost got exterminated. 

Visiting the museum will give you the opportunity of learning more about this group of people, reading their spiritual manuscripts and listening to their extraordinary stories. The museum was built on the top of Mount Gerizim, where you have a great view over Nablus!
