Strategically placed near the old Ottoman train station which has been renovated and serves as a small strolling park, the engine looks authentic enough because it is. But, apparently it isn't one of the engines which pulled Turkish trains around the area. Nice enough for...More

After visiting the restored train stations in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, the one in Beer Sheva is a disappointment. While it's always nice to see a piece of history, there's nothing exciting to do there and plus there aren't really restaurants as well.

Nice reconstructed site of Turkish Engine. the place is well built, but beside one (only one) local restaurant there is nothing to do if there is no festival of any kind....

Fun for the whole family. Tours are given in English and Hebrew. Also activities for children in one of the trains. Free outdoor concerns in the summer.

This museum includes a visit into an old train with films allowing the visitor to feel as he is traveling. The explanations about the train journey from Egypt north to Turkey via Beer Sheva is interesting. A bit confusing to find, but well worth the...More

Nicely organised, with interesting explanations of the period. I also suggest to visit the ANZAC cemitary nearby.

Our three boys, 9, 6 and 3 enjoyed. This is a short activity...an hour or so. We combined it with the Air Force Museum and lunch at the Azrieli mall.
