  • The interpretive material is basic, but useful. Site is well maintained. Visitors don't have access to any cave nor did I see any genuine scroll.
  • Qumran (Qumran National Park), is an archaeological site in the West Bank of Israel that is often visited by Christian pilgrims. In this area also about 981 Dead Sea Scrolls were found. Among them are parts of Isaiah Scroll and Samuel Scroll. And in my opinion, the right time to visit this place is in the morning because there are usually not too many visitors so you are free to explore outside and comfortably shop at the souvenir shop around there.
