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!)
