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

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.
