The Tabernacle

The historic connection between Timna Park and the Bible era led to the creation of a life size model of the Tabernacle, one of Israel’s most special sites. Timna provides the perfect desert background to display this fascinating replica of the Tabernacle, built in a complete, accurate and authentic reconstruction of the appearance, dimensions and colors of ‘Mishkan’, used by Israelites in desert. Inside visitors can view exact models of the altar, the copper sink, the table of showbread, the menorah, the ark of the covenant, vestments of the priests, and more.

Timna Park offers fascinating guided tours of the Tabernacle.
