The Eran Shamir Mazkeret Batya Museum is free on Fridays and Saturdays as part of the “Israeli Shabbat” project.
The museum is in what used to be the Clerks' House - one of the first two public buildings built in the colony in 1885. The guide was a charming and knowledgeable person. He gave us a brief overview of the colony's history and its establishment. There are pictures and objects, and on the second floor, there are restored rooms from the early days of the colony with many authentic objects.
Then he took us for a short walk in the colony, showing us other spots with artifacts from its early days.
It is a short and pleasant walk. It can be combined with a trip to the nearby Hulda Forest.
