The Bar David Museum for Jewish Art and Judaica is located in Kibbutz Baram.
The museum bears the name of its donors, Moshe and Tova Bar David. It is devoted to Jewish art and Judaica, combining the new and the old. This against the splendid backdrop of the enchanting landscapes of the Galilee on the northern border of Israel turns a visit to the museum into an extraordinary experience.

inscription from Mishnah times
