When Kibbutz Hanita was established a partially-destroyed stone building was found on the site. It was discovered that one of the rooms had served as the living quarters of the guard and his family. The building was subsequently renovated and for the past half a century has served as a museum. Archaeological finds such as glass, pottery and ceramic vessels can be viewed as well as coins from the ancient mint of Tyre and stone implements from prehistoric times. The Tower and Stockade section of the museum features an exhibit that chronicles events from the year 1936 until Israel's War of Independence, including photographs, weapons, tools, press clippings and models of the area. ++There is also an audio-visual presentation that depicts the establishment of the Kibbutz, electronic maps that show the settlements established between the years 1936 and 1939 and the events of the War of Independence in the Western Galilee and a film taken on the day Hanita was first established.
