Palestinian Heritage Centre

The Palestinian Heritage Centre’s director, Maha Saca, invites you to visit the Centre’s museum and cultural exhibition. The Centre, established in 1991 for the revival, preservation and promotion of Palestinian cultural heritage, consists of a traditional living room, a furnished Bedouin tent, a library, an exhibition of traditional items and a gift shop. The exhibition space is 250 m² and can host up to 100 visitors at a time. The Centre’s staff will take visitors on a free guided tour of the exhibition.

The Centre sells posters, postcards and traditional, handmade embroidered items, such as purses, bags, shawls, pillows and pillow cases and modern embroidered dresses. Palestinian women from various villages and refugee camps around the city of Bethlehem produce these wonderfully embroidered items. You can take photographs wearing traditional Palestinian costumes while drinking coffee in the Bedouin tent.

The Centre is active both on the national and international levels in promoting the preservation of a heritage and a tradition that are slowly disappearing. Located on Manger Street, the Centre opens daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For visits outside regular working hours, call the Centre for an appointment (02-2742642).
