  • Beautifully built museum complex! The museum itself is rather small, but very interesting. Anyone interested in Palestinian history and the works of Mahmoud Darwish must visit.
  • Interesting look into the life of one of Palestine's most famous poets. Beautiful view on the outside and air-conditioning on the inside. Versions of his work in languages and collection of his possessions. (Including his coffee pot ;)) There's also a movie of sorts that you can stand and listen to of interviews and him reciting his poetry, which a few of us enjoyed. If you're in Ramallah, would recommend. (Wish there gift shop had some individual postcards to send off to people or keep as mementos!)
