An unexpected interesting exhibition which shows Beersheva's historical and Biblical past. Now we know why Abraham came here and what he did.

If you love your bible stories, then you won't want to miss Abraham's Well. There's a 3D video and visualization of the biblical verses.

I paid 110 NIS for 2 adults and 2 or 3 kids depending on age. We bought tickets at the door. The website was out of order. According to Google, it is closed on Friday and Saturday.
