The Gush Katif museum in Jerusalem was founded in the month of August 2008 (Av 7768) and tells the story of the Jewish settlement in Gaza from the Hasmonean period through to our time.
The museum examines the history of the Jewish settlement in Gaza over a timeline of three thousand years. It describes the establishment of the Jewish settlements following the six-day war, presents their development and achievements, and serves as a memorial to a glorious chapter in Jewish history spanning thirty-five years.
It is located close to the entrance to town - Shaarei Zedek St. 5, with a private entrance.
The place is well sign-posted. There is a map.
