Museum of Taxes - Jerusalem, Israel
Museum of Taxes
corner of Agron Street and King David Street, Jerusalem, IsraelMap
Neighborhood: West Jerusalem

Situated in the Customs and VAT Department building, this one room museum (one of two tax museums in the world) opened in 1964 to educate the public about the tax process in Israel and around the Jewish world. The wall exhibition which is a little faded tells the history of tax from biblical and ancient times to the present. Part of the museum is dedicated to customs and there is a display of items confiscated at the border, such as shoes with diamonds stuffed inside their wooden soles, a life jacket filled with narcotics and a dress padded with cigarette roll-up paper. Entrance is free.
