The Motor House Museum

Bet HaMotor Museum (“The Motor House Museum”) is a building situated at the entrance to Kibbutz Kinneret. The renovated, restored house was built in 1910 and was home to the first pump in the area that drew water from the Jordan River in order to water the Emek grounds. Between the years 1912-1930, a group of Yemenite new immigrants lived in very hard conditions in the area as they tried to grow crops in the area. The pump worked until 1928 when a supply of electricity was brought to the area. The Museum is closed most of the time and visitors need to book in advance.

Hello reader. My name is Charlotte Noris and I am sure that you will definitely enjoy my blog. Do you know why? All because on the pages you will see bright and colorful photos, as well as useful information. My husband and I are freelancers, so we can travel at any time of the year. For myself, I most often plan tours in advance, but it also happens that the trip turns out to be spontaneous when I see an interesting place and a nice price. At the age of 35, I have visited more than 30 countries and do not plan to stop there. I want to visit all continents and the most secret corners of our planet.
