?Who are we
The Museum of Pioneer Settlement is part of the Educational Center for Settlement in the Jezreel Valley that relates the story of “The Valley”. The museum exhibits the largest display in Israel about settlement, specifically in the Jezreel Valley from 1911–1951. Emphasis is placed on both personal and local stories.
Relevant social and ideological values are presented as they were demonstrated by the activities of the pioneers: the need to take responsibility for social ideals, the importance of “getting things done”, the laying of foundations for a secular Jewish lifestyle, the encouragement of tolerance and mutual assistance, the sharing of a common destiny and most of all, the strengthening of ties between the People and the Land.
