The Doctor’s House Museum/Beit Harofeh/Menachemiyah
The Doctor’s Museum and the settling of Moshava Menachemiyah, the first Hebrew settlement in the Jordan Valley, provide a moving experience. We enter a pharmacy from those days and get to know the utensils, healing methods and instruments that were available to the doctors, pharmacists and mid-wives. We will see health publications that greatly influenced and changed the period. We will learn about the lives of the Valley’s pioneers, how they made a living, raised families and defended themselves in a very harsh, hostile environment. Recommended to combine a tour of tales about the houses in Founders’ St., a visit to the Payis Handicrafts Center for aromatic-therapeutic products (accompanied by light refreshments and herbal tea) and guided tours in the moshava’s vicinity.
The tours suit groups (coordinated in advance), families and individuals.
Visiting days in museum: Sundays, Mondays and Wednesdays 10:00-14:00, Tuesdays 14:00-17:00
Fridays and Shabbat museum is open only to groups coordinated in advance.
