The Museum in the Pioneers' Courtyard is situated in the first dining room of the Deganya Alef Kibbutz. The story of Deganya is presented from the organization of a commune in Hadera up until the establishment of a permanent settlement. The founders of Deganya's memory is perpetuated through the museum, acknowledging the fact that they were the first settlement group to realize the idea of a communal settlement in Israel. Photographs, letters, maps, models and other items are used to bring the period to life for visitors.
One can take part in a guided tour of the authentic pioneer courtyard, a guided tour of the Museum of Deganya, watch a film about Deganya from its very beginning and see a Syrian tank that was courageously halted by members of the Kibbutz in the War of Independence. There are also a number of workshops that take place in the Pioneers Yard; numerology, laughing yoga, yoga, feldenkrais, drumming circles and a shooting range.
