Negev Museum of Art & Museum of Islamic & Near Eastern Cultures

Museum in Be’er Sheva

Housed in the elegant Ottoman governor’s mansion (1906), the art museum hosts temporary exhibitions that change three times a year (see the website for details). Nearby, an elegantly proportioned Ottoman mosque (1906), its arches inspired in part by the architecture of Germany (the Turks' allies at the time), puts on year-long exhibitions focussing on Islamic cultures.
