Museum of Prehistory

Museum of Prehistory

The first part of the museum is dedicated to historical artifacts found on and near the grounds of Kibbutz Maayan Baruch. Most of the artifacts were discovered in burial caves near the present site of the museum. The artifacts include clay vessels, glass vessels and jewelry.

The second, and main part of the museum is dedicated to showing the largest collection of prehistoric artifacts amassed in the Hulah Valley to this day.

The collection includes an extensive variety of tools and vessels, including hand axes from the period before man settled in the Hulah Valley about 780,000. Handles made from bone or wood are attached to the tools. From this display, one is able to learn about the preparation of tools and their different uses of each period. Animal bones were found near the tools, and from those we learn about the animals in the area from this period.

The collection of skulls found in the area enables us to learn about the development and changes in bone structure and the size of the brain from the chimpanzee to modern man.
In the third part of the museum there is an ethno-geographic wing where an amazing collection of artifacts and tools from around the world is displayed. These artifacts are all made from natural or organic sources. This collection has been amassed from all around the world in modern times, and in many of these places the tools are still in use today.
