Ein Yael is an idyllic mix of nature and history. The museum is located outdoor across the valley from the Biblical Zoo and at the end of the Park Hamesilla. As you enter the nature reserve you can visit an ancient Roman Street & meet the craftsman that worked in those times (during Ein Yael festivals), visit an animal corner and enjoy fun workshops like fresco, basket weaving and instrument making.
