The Negev Visitors Center is a one-stop-shop to bring the opportunities of the Negev to light and to challenge old stereotypes and misconceptions of the region. This unique “museum” exhibits the Negev’s impressive past, present opportunities, communities, and the region’s exciting future as well. The Visitors Center not only connects all people and all areas of life, but also demonstrates the vital importance of the Negev region to the entire State of Israel. The Visitors Center is an exciting hands-on attraction with innovative technological displays, guided experiential and interactive activities, exciting data boards, and a 270-degree theater. The center is a wonderful opportunity for all ages, groups, families and individuals to come and see for themselves the real advantages of Negev living and to connect with the personal and often emotional stories of real-life Negev pioneers.
If David Ben-Gurion was alive today, he would certainly be happy to see what is happening in the Negev. One can only recall his vision of flourishing and thriving Negev. The Negev constitutes 60% of Israel's landmass and offers a wide variety of opportunities for housing, study, employment, social life and leisure.

In addition to Be'er Sheva, 200 other cities, towns, and communities have been established in the area, including Dimona, Yeruham, Mitzpeh Ramon, Ofakim, Sderot and of course Eilat - the tourism capital of Israel. Today, most of Israel's population lives in 24% of Israel's territory in the center of Israel, as the people in the Negev face various challenges. Despite these challenges, each year the Negev attracts more young families to live and build their homes in the various communities in the region and the residents continue to innovate and solve the challenges that once stopped residents from choosing to live in the Negev. In recent years, the Negev has been enjoying real prosperity, not only in words but also in deeds. Many entrepreneurs have discovered its potential, established successful hi-tech companies, start-ups and large enterprises, and agricultural innovations, thereby providing diverse employment for thousands of employees. The development of the Negev will bring a population of up to 16 million by 2048. In other words, those who move to the Negev are making a great investment, personally and financially!
