Overview

The Museum offers a choice display of Prehistoric Artifacts, which were collested in the Hula Valley,by the members of the Kibbutz, over a period of many years.Prehistoric man first appeard in this area about 780,000 years ago. Approximatley 6,000 years ago the period of recorded history began. Of this later period the Museum offers finds collected within the Kibbutz, mostly from the burial caves not far from the Museum itself, from the Middle Bronze Age (4,000 years ago), the Roman Age (2,000 years ago)and the Byzantine Age (1,600 years ago).In addiotion - an Ethnographic Collection of tools used today by tribes and people from many continents, which demonstrate graphically life in former Prehistoric culture. In many instances these tools are suprisingly similar to those in the display of Prehistoric artifacts.

This is a small museum packed with amazing prehistorical findings from the Galilee, ranging from -750,000 (yes!) to 12,000 BC. Besides the richness of the findings, there are two things that made this museum special for me: (1) the display blends prehistoric findings with ethnographic...More
