OPEN-AIR ARCHAEOLOGICAL MUSEUM – THE FIRST IN SOUTH AFRICA.

It is my dream to create an open-air archaeological museum on the African continent that will surely be a world-class facility for all international guests. The goal of the open-air archaeological museum is to educate people concerning the history and culture of biblical times. Visitors will have the opportunity to view the artefacts from 2400 B.C.E to the Roman Era (the time of Jesus). The various strata in the dig will reflect the different periods in Israel’s history, with replicas of pots, shards, ancient dye vat, beehives, coins, etc., plus many items that reflect Israel’s history in the land. The museum also demonstrates to visitors the kind of work that archaeologists do in Israel. They spend their days studying artefacts and trying to piece the past together. 

Construction Updates: Date: 15 November 2019

So far, we have now erected the ancient gates of biblical times used in the bible. We are working hard over the weekends to have it completed before the end of the month. Sometime in December, we will have the walls painted in typical Canaanite style, with the main entrance painted in Roman stone paving with two biblical mosaics on the side of the pathway. We also started working on our new exhibit, the ancient Galilean Synagogue where our future mosaics will be laid on the floor. Have a beautiful day.
