“Interesting review of Bedouin culture”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

High in the hills overlooking be'er Sheva is a small cultural center depicting Bedouin life.
They have some interesting dioramas and several beautiful costumes. There is also a
replication of caves in the area that were used as hiding places in times of war, and as burial chambers.

You can climb 60 steps up to the observation tower, which has a good view on a clear day.

Hot tea is offered and included in the price, but beware, as it is very sweet!

“Joe Allon Museum (Bedouin Culture)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

Nice place to which we frequently take guests from overseas. gives a taste of Bedouin life and culture in nice displays. Short movies in different languages are also screened. Outside there is a Bedouin hospitality tent which serves tea and coffe and there is also a small cafeteria.

“Peep into Bedouin society”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

This museum is a pleasant and interesting way to get some information about Bedouin society and way of life. I just visited the main exhibition, without being guided nor offered the possibility to get into a Bedouin tent - as is mentioned in the publicity - or to talk to Bedouin people, therefore I was a little disappointed.

A friend took me there and showed me the projects that are in the works. The women were hard at work and the class was full.

“Very good insight into a different world”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

A Bedouin guide took us through the museum, we learned a lot about how these people have lived since the beginning of history. An amazing insight into a very different culture. Definitely worth visiting.
