The Negev Museum of Art is located in the Old City of Be'er Sheva. The Museum's building was once home to a Turkish governor in the Ottoman period. It was built in 1906 next to governmental buildings and the grand mosque. During the British Mandate the building was the home of the district officer and then as a girls' school. After Israel declared independence it served as the municipality and later became the Negev Museum of Art. In 2004 the building was extensively renovated which included the installment of an elevator and the modification of the inside to modern museum presentation standards. Today the building is a preserved historic building. The museum is home to two galleries that hold temporary displays. Visitors can enjoy the exhibits as well as the live concerts held in the vast entrance yard in the summer. There are guided tours of the exhibitions every Wednesday at 17:00 and every Friday and Saturday at 11:00. There are also art workshops for children every Saturday at 12:00.
