 The Saxum Visitor Center, a new multimedia center, opened its gates in Abu Gosh on Thursday in the presence of Minister of Tourism Yariv Levin and Mateh Yehuda Regional Council head Niv Vizel. The aim of the center is to better educate Christians about Israel.

"I truly believe that this center has the potential to attract tourists and immigrants from all over the world who are looking for a meaningful way to learn about history," Levin said at the event.
The center, an initiative of "Opus Dei" (a Catholic institution), hopes to give Christian immigrants and tourists an easier and more modern way of understanding the history of Israel. It hopes to deepen their knowledge of the country through multimedia resources that will then enrich their experience in the country.

On display in the center is a timeline combining the dates of the Old Testament and those of human civilization. There is a stone map that tracks the journeys of Abraham and Moses, touchscreens and 4D projections about Jerusalem and different holy sites throughout Israel.
