Description:

The Inn of the Good Samaritan is a 19th-century Turkish building valued by Christians as a tangible setting for Jesus’s parable of the Good Samaritan.

In 2009, the Museum of the Good Samaritan, one of the world's largest mosaic museums, opened to the public. It is located on the main highway between Jerusalem and Jericho (Road No. 1). The museum rests near the site  mentioned in the New Testament's parable of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10: 25). The museum features an open-air display of mosaics and archaeological findings from both Jewish and Samaritan synagogues and Christian churches, including cisterns and remnants from the reconstructed Good Samaritan Byzantine Church.
