Dreamland: American Travelers to the Holy Land in the 19th Century

December 2010 - March 2013

The National Library of Israel, Jerusalem
The image of the Holy Land in 19th-century America derived from religious and cultural sentiment, encouraged by the experiences of a few groups: missionaries, pilgrims and tourists, explorers, settlers, and consular officers, all of whom had different motives for going to Palestine. They were influenced by the growing interests of other nations, and improvements in regional transportation made their travels possible. This is the first exhibition on American presence in the Holy Land. The year 2010 coincides with the centennial death of Mark Twain, who traveled to the Holy Land in 1867 and recorded his observations in The Innocents Abroad. Twain had a great impact on American perceptions of the Holy Land and the developing new age of travel in the Near East.
