Beit Gordon (Gordon House) in kibbutz Degania Alef

This place was founded in order to create a "house of nature, agriculture and knowledge”, as is defined in its official name. The Beit Gordon (Gordon House) museum was founded in 1935 and is considered to be the first of the museums in the working settlement and one of the first nature museums of its kind in Israel.  Its various sections provide any desired information regarding the area of the Sea of Galilee: artifacts related to the settlers in the Kinarot Valley- starting with prehistoric time (including fascinating finds which prehistoric people left behind) and until the beginning of Zionism, a diverse collection of stuffed animals of local species (some can no longer be found in this area), films about the local nature and settlement of the area, an archeological display, and an area for the memory of A. D. Gordon, who was a pioneer, ideologue and the subject of admiration for many of the people of the "Second Aliyah” (the second major immigration wave of Jews into the country which took place between 1904 and 1914, mainly due to the mounting anti-Semitism and pogroms in Russia). Here were put together some of his personal items and letters. Sometimes changing art exhibitions take place here as well.
