See the place the historic Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered at Qumran.

Qumran is best known for being the discovery site of the Dead Sea Scrolls, located on the northwestern shore of the Dead Sea in the Judean Desert. The historic village was established during the Hellenistic period. The site now hosts a visitor center where guests can learn about the history of the village and the Dead Sea Scrolls. In addition to exploring the caves and ruins, visitors can view artifacts from ancient Qumran, including tools, pottery, and ancient documents. The site is easy to get around, and takes about 1.5 to 2 hours to see.
