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.
address: The museum is a 10-15 minute walk from the central bus station and central railway station. Buses 13 and 31 from the central bus station also stop by the entrance of the museum.
Open Hours: Mon, Tue, Thu 10:00-16:00, Wed 12:00-19:00, Fri, Sat 10:00-14:00, Sun Closed

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.
