It displays artifacts found in the area of the Tel and descriptions of the life of the settlers in the late 19th century, especially those who worked in the factory that became the museum. Also shows a short film.

Ha'mizgaga - The Glass Factory Museum for Nautical and Regional Archeology is small museum but big with what they have to show inside. Visit the place and enjoy the explanations regarding the glass factory and regarding Napoleon army.
