About the TERRA SANCTA MUSEUM
The Terra Sancta Museum (TSM) is located in the heart of the old city of Jerusalem and exhibits Christianity’s archaeological and artistic heritage, which has been carefully preserved for 800 years by the Franciscans. In 2016, ATS- in close cooperation with the Custody of the Holy Land- has promoted the opening of the TSM (Terra Sancta Museum) intending to foster mutual understanding, respect and peace values among people and to create an international platform for acceptance and tolerance. This is the first of its kind Museum promoting Jerusalem as an inclusive and open City for everybody: it covers 4000 years of history with a unique approach. TSM is a high profile international museum that has been employing outstanding skills from a number of renowned museums across the world but still deeply rooted in the Palestinian local community.
The project “A Community Living Museum for Palestinian Youth” (ENI/2019/407-798) is aimed at offering a comprehensive learning and educational program for children, families, youth, and students, promoting the potential of the museum as a friendly learning space. To achieve these goals, a network of public schools, CBOs and museums of East Jerusalem will be established and engaged in raising awareness on the museum’s activities and its potential for the socio-economic growth of the community. Finally, to create a qualified team of the TSM, on the job training for local young professionals will be provided both at local museums and abroad.
