Mazkeret Batya Historical Museum
Mazkeret Batya Historical Museum

The moshava (village) Mazkeret Batya was founded in 1883, at the time of the first wave of Zionist Jewish immigration (first aliya), with the aid of Baron Edmond de Rothschild of Paris. The Mazkeret Batya village museum, honouring Eran Shamir, is dedicated to local history. It portrays life in olden times through artifacts, photographs and documents. The museum spans several old buildings, some now under restoration, and an old bucket-chain well. Even as the village is turning into a town, the main street still retains much of the old village character. The new (1927) synagogue and the old cemetery can also be visited. Guide assistance in English can be provided by prior arrangement.
