It has been closed for 20 months, but, today The Walled Off Hotel posted a hopeful message on Facebook:
“We are pleased to inform you that the hotel doors are open for visits and overnight stays as of today. The museum is still closed due to some maintenance work. Welcome everybody.”
There seem to be some novelties on the ground floor. The section with CCTV cameras has moved to the left of the reception, where the “Mediterranean Seaview” triptych hang before it was donated to charity. Another cool piece is the wood-carved model of Jerusalem’s Old Town made by the late Tawfiq Salsaa. The model was on display at Santas Ghetto 2007 and also at Banksy vs Bristol Museum in 2009.
