It is located at the Muqata, Palestinian Authority headquarters in Ramallah.

Arafat’s small bedroom where he was confined during the last three years of his life under an Israeli siege is a centerpiece. Israel imposed the blockade after it was proven that he was the organizer and chief instigator of the bloody Second Intifada (Palestinian uprising) that was taking place at the time.
