The Museum of Yarmukian Culture Attractions
Not many people are aware of the fact that in great parts of this country various groups of people, whom we generally refer to as "Prehistoric Man”, have flourished. Thus, for example, on the banks of the Yarmuk River flourished a rich culture about eight thousand years ago, in an era which witnessed the emergence of human agriculture. Thus, it was only natural that a museum dedicated to this culture was founded here in order to display findings which were excavated in the kibbutz’s fields, next to the Yarmuk River. Here, at the Museum of Yarmukian Culture, located in kibbutz Sha’ar HaGolan, you will find, for example, tens of clay fertility figurines (a great number of which were transferred to the Israel Museum in Jerusalem, as well as to museums outside of Israel). Additional findings include basalt pendants, ritual objects and grooved basalt stones which served for various purposes. The Museum of Yarmukian Culture was founded in 1950 and is considered to be the first museum of pre-history in Israel.
Here you will also be able to watch a fascinating film which humorously presents the story of the archeologists who excavated here and tells the unique tale of the ancient farmers, who planted, harvested and made pottery here, for the first time in the Land of Israel.
