Haim Shturman House – Ein Harod

The Haim Shturman house was inaugurated in 1941 to commemorate Haim Shturman,  “Hashomer” and “Haganah” man and a member of Ein Harod, who had fallen on the 18th of the month of Elul, 5688 (1938), when his car ran over a mine in the Beit She’an Valley. Alongside Haim, Aharon Etkin and Dr. David Mosensohn were also killed. “Gan Hashlosha” is named after them.

The Shturman family continued to pay a dear price in blood for the protection of the home land. Haim’s son, Moshe, was killed in the War of Independence, and two of his grandsons were killed in the War of Attrition: Haim, who was a warrior in the naval commando, fell at the battle of Green Island, and Amir Brin, who was killed serving as a tank driver on the banks of the Suez Canal.

The museum, which is among the first in the country, contains unique collections and a research institute with a rare collection and a rich archive of written material, photos and maps.

What’s at the site: the story of the Shturman family is interwoven in the history of the settlement in the valley and the figures of Hankin, Wingate and others. The museum houses a unique collection of animals that lived in the valley, the archaeological collection, weapons from the days of the Haganah, halls with altering exhibitions – art and science (for children), an auditorium and a commemoration courtyard for the fallen of the valley.

For the general public: pre-arranged short guided tours concerning the settlement.

For children: fascinating activities on various subjects at exhibitions, all over and around the museum.
