The Mitzpe Revivim Museum is located on Kibbutz Revivim, a community established prior to Israel‘s declaration of independence that played an important role in Israel’s War of Independence. Three such outposts were set up in 1943 and their very presence influenced the UN’s decision to include the Negev as part of the State of Israel in the 1947 partition plan. Mitzpe Revivim was besieged during the War of Independence by Egyptian soldiers and the hard battle was won by a handful of pioneers and Palmach soldiers. Visitors to the museum can view trenches, positions and bunkers and in the fortress of the settlement is an exhibition of items that bring to life how people lived in that period. Additionally, one can see communication and residential rooms, showers, the dining room, culture room, weapons room and old agricultural tools and tractors. There is also an exhibit on irrigation in the Negev. There are two tours available- one of two hours and one of four.

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.
