  • This park exhibits offers the visitor interactive activities. It covers a large variety of scientific subjects. The park includes historic buildings - the school for Bedouin children built at the Ottoman ruling period, a building dating the British Mandate , along with classes used during many years as "Masada" Elementary School ( First Hebrew school in Beer Sheva). Additional 5,000 sq meters were excavated below ground. It was first built in 1914 as an agricultural school for Bedouin Children , but at the outbreak of WW1 The Ottoman government converted it into a Red Crescent hospital serving the Ottoman army. At the end of WW1 and the occupation of Beersheba by the British Mandate forces in Israel, the building was used as a school for Bedouin children, and it served its purpose for about 30 years. From 1949 until 1979, it was used as “Bait Hachayal” (Hebrew for Soldiers Hostel). Later on it was deserted until the establishment of Carasso Science Park. One more historical fact: It was here that the Armistice agreement between Israel and Egypt were signed at the end of the Israeli independence war.
  • A fantastic science museum that could easily fill a whole day for the family. Interested kids of all ages Even the older ones actually learned new things. Check out the Nuclear Science exhibit.
  • Very pleasant relaxed and cultural atmosphere. Interesting for children.
  • educating experience for both kids and adults
  • The new science park in Be'er Sheva is unlike anything else in Israel. This is a massive site in the heart of the old city and they have definitely raised the bar for all museums/parks in the country. The fully interactive exhibitions were both incredibly fun and provided a learning experience that was easy to understand. Our family recommends that you make the short trip from Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, etc. to see this science park, which has put Israel on the map as a leader in the field.
