The bustling Ancient Market of King David – A family experience

August 15 , 2016  – August 30 , 2016

Join us for an eventful summer adventure with merchants, shepherds and olive farmers. A seasoned oil merchant from Judah will lead us through the Museum in the footsteps of the ancient trade routes.

As we follow him we will discover the world of ancient trade of The Fertile Crescent, overcome obstacles and challenges, reveal amazing discoveries and get to know the daily lives of the inhabitants of the past cities of the Judean Hills.

The tour will be guided by professional costumed actors, creating an absorbing experience inspired by the new exhibition (opening in September) – "In the Valley of David and Goliath".
To end the journey costumed actors will lead the children through the exhibitions and out into a vibrant marketplace simulating the daily life of the ancient inhabitants of Judah.

We will meet the craftsmen, experiment with ancient crafts and learn their professional secrets. Together we will process wool, make delicacies from olives, dress up and create the atmosphere of the bustling market of the days of King David.
