Palestine Pavilion

Palestine Pavilion

THEME: Olive City, Peace City

PAVILION: The Pavilion presents a fantastic City of Olive, with a façade featuring the flag of Palestine and a solemn Arabic gate.   

EXHIBIT: On both sides and the front inside the Pavilion are two multimedia screens and dozens of imbedded lantern displays showcasing abundant products and the distinctive culture of Palestine. Visitors enter past a reception desk and portraits of Palestinian leaders to view a photo collage of ordinary Palestinians. Video display stations inform visitors of different aspects of Palestinian life. The next gallery includes a display on the City of Jerusalem, Peace City. From models of ancient Jerusalem to displays featuring modern Jerusalem, the exhibit illustrates the evolution of a dynamic city that remains the focal point for three major world religions. There is also a display of a traditional Palestinian home. Along the final exhibition area are exhibits on other cities in Palestine. Visitors should note that there are displays that promote the cause for Palestinian liberation from Israel that may be disturbing to some.

CUISINE: There is no dining area listed for the Pavilion.

SHOPPING: Genuine Palestinian olive oil is among the products sold in a gift shop at the exit of the Pavilion.

Note: This Pavilion is part of the Asia Joint Pavilion II
