Dar Al Tifel

The late Ms. Hind Husseini first thought of the concept of establishing a Palestinian Heritage Museum in 1962 with the emergence of an urgent need to protect the rich and diverse Palestinian cultural Heritage. Museum items were initially collected from private Palestinian donations and from other significant contributors like Mrs. Violet Barber, a British resident of Palestine, at the time, who provided a sizable collection of authentic clothes and Arab traditional items. The Palestinian Heritage Museum (PHM) re- opened in May 2012 within the compound of Dar Tifel Arabi Organization in Jerusalem and is located in a 200-year-old Ottoman building.
