Archeological Museum Beit Mirjam

Archeological Museum Beit Mirjam

Beit-Miriam museum is an archaeological museum located in Kibbutz Palmachim.
The Museum, which was granted formal national recognition in 1995, is named after the late Mrs. Miriam Lifschitz, a member of the kibbutz and one of the Museum’s founders.

The Museum exhibit archaeological finds from excavations in the area, including ancient amphorae and anchors retrieved from the Mediterranean Sea. Most of the excavations were undertaken as a result of development work and sand mining performed in the kibbutz and throughout the region.
The collection includes artifacts from the Prehistoric Age, Chalcolithic Age, Bronze Age, Iron Age, Persian Period, and Hellenistic Period, Roman Period, Byzantine Period and Islamic Period.
The area in which the artifacts were discovered has been an international crossroad throughout history, especially the ancient harbor of Yavneh-Yam, which during the Hellenistic period played an important role in sea trade.

The Museum has two wings; the first with chronologically arranged exhibit and a new wing that will focus on Marine Biology and Ecology, Undersea Archaeology and finds from excavations in the site of Yavneh-Yam.
