The Joe Alon Center No votes yet
The Joe Alon Center- The Bedouin Culture Musem- is located near to Kibbutz Lahav. The Museum explores Bedouin Culture- the Bedouin tribes are scattered throughout the Negev and Sinai deserts and have undergone dramatic changes in recent years as they have moved from a nomadic to a modern lifestyle. Items from Bedouin life such as clothing, weapons, agricultural implements and mannequins all bring to life the changes that these people have undergone as well as the richness of their culture. The traditional Bedouin way of life is fast disappearing and thus there was an urgent need to preserve and document this unique culture. How to get there: The Joe Alon Center lies in the heart of the Lahav Forest, near to Kibbutz Lahav, 20 km north of Be'er Sheva. From north take route six or route forty to the south as far as Beit Kama Junction. Continue on route 40 to Dvira Junction towards the Joe Alon Center which is signposted in brown.
Open Hours: Sun-Thu 8:30-17:00, Fri 8:30-14:00
