    Had a great time at Lunada. This gem is two parts science museum, one part gymboree. My six year old son loved it. It was very hands on with lots to do. Also of note is how well they manage crowd control. Extra staff and timers on certain activities ensured everything was very smooth, even when it was crowded.
    It is probably best for kids ages 4-9, but every single floor has a part for toddlers and babies so you don’t have to leave younger siblings at home. I spent 3 hours, but could have easily stayed another hour.

    The new Park Hayeladim adjacent to Lunada in Beersheva was fantastic. Probably the best playground we’ve ever been to. My kids could have spent the day there and forgotten about the museum (which btw, we did the same day, also great, but the playground is free!) There is a huge mischakiya under a shade canopy but also pirates island and omega which aren’t shaded so I would recommend going early morning or late afternoon to really enjoy those.

    Highly recommend the Lunada children’s museum in Be’er Sheva. We were there and it wasn’t crowded at all. The place is so great — lots to do for my 2, 5 and 8 year old. It’s very clean, the staff is helpful, bathrooms located throughout all the areas. It’s easy to walk through the rooms quickly and think there’s not much there, but if you look carefully at each station, there’s a lot of cool stuff to do. One example is this table on the ground floor where the kids learn all about budgeting. At first it just looked like a lot of random pieces and we would have skipped it, but then my husband took the time to put all the pieces on the board properly (they each have a set amount of money and can “buy” what they want with it) and it ended up being fantastic and a great learning opportunity. There’s also a fun outdoor playground section on the lower floor, and another cute outdoor section by their eating area. Both have picnic tables. They sell drinks, packaged popsicles/ice cream, candy, etc and I saw them selling some food items but I don’t know if they have hashgacha or not. We loved how all the cool signs (like the “Did you know…?”) were in both Hebrew and English, so this could be a really worthwhile trip for any Anglos coming to Israel for a visit with young kids. The cost was around 45 shek per person, but there was so much to do and we spent about 4 hours there. No one is allowed to wear shoes throughout the musuem, so bring along socks if you’ll want. And the website says they close between 1-4pm, so call and check their hours before going. Today they were open the entire day straight, but I dont know if that’s due to the holiday.

    We spent 6 hours there and my kids didn’t want to leave…

    My 6 yo and 9 yo enjoyed but 2 hours was enough. There’s an AMAZING public park right behind lunada (park hayeladim) that we spent more time in for free with an phenomenal playground, zip line, pirate boat, and more.

    We were there. ( kids ages 11, 9, 6, 2) Great stuff for both big kids and little kids. It was pretty busy but not overwhelmingly crowded.

    Went to the “Lunada” children’s museum in Beersheva on Saturday. My kids are 9.5, 5.5 and 1.5. The bigger ones had been before. It’s such a wonderful museum, full of interesting, fun and interactive activities for everyone of all ages – they didn’t want to leave! It’s advised to purchase tickets in advance and pack your own food (the kiosk options are terrible). A great way to spend a Saturday!

    Took my daughter to Lunada Be’er Sheva – what a super place! Very fun science museum for younger kids (5 – 12), all hands-on and everything working and interesting. It was really clean and well-maintained, probably the best kids’ place that I have been to here in the last 10 years.
    The madrichim were super-helpful, friendly and fun, not lurking around on their phones like I usually see here. My daughter enjoyed it so much she asked if we can move to Be’er Sheva so she can go back every day! We went this morning and were the only ones there – I can imagine that it gets very busy during the vacations!

    LONG POST: I couldn’t resist going to Lunada on opening day. I was just so fascinated by the fact that this place was actually opening on the date that

    they had announced in city plans years ago. That never happens! Equally curious
    was that I had heard nothing about its opening. It was all very peculiar and I
    just needed proof that it actually existed.
    Well, it does and all I can say is “wow.” Ok, of course I
    can and will actually say a lot more than that. Here goes.
    First of all, this place is located in the Be’er Sheva neighborhood
    of Nachal Ashan (also known as Neve Menachem) – about an 8-minute drive from my
    house but I have never actually there before today. It is on the western edge
    of the city and is mostly private and semi-private homes.
    As we approached the address, I was SHOCKED by the amount of
    land that is gated off and designated to be the children’s park adjacent to the
    Lunada (54 dunan/13 acres!). The land is still being developed and won’t be
    ready for a few more years.
    But, the children’s museum does in fact exist and is open
    for business. And, it is great. It is bright and colorful and fun and
    interactive. There were only a few other families there so we got the full
    attention of the college-aged staff.
    The kids all had a great time. They were happy and active
    for three hours straight (a miracle!)
    The museum brought up some difficult feelings for me and I
    have been trying to figure out why. I think I have identified a few different
    1) I have long dreamed of (and
    even planned out – I have a whole powerpoint if you are interested J) creating a children’s
    museum very similar to this one but with a Biblical – specifically Genesis – theme. So, it made me kind of sad to see
    something that reminded me of my own unfulfilled vision. I also personally find
    the Biblical themes more compelling than the ones this museum emphasizes.
    2) Related to that, I am
    generally ambivalent about all of these museums that are so reliant on
    technology and flashing lights and buttons and screens. I don’t actually
    believe that kids need or should have that much stimulation to have fun.
    3) Finally, like many, I sometimes
    have mixed feelings about all of the “development” in Be’er Sheva. This museum
    is state-of-the-art. So is the new Carasso Science Park. Can our city really
    sustain these two major (somewhat similar) institutions? Its like the dreadful feeling
    I get when I walk into the Grand Kanyon mall. Is the city getting ahead of
    itself? Are these spaces designed with the actual residents in mind or for
    theoretical future residents of the Negev or for potential tourists? Don’t get
    me wrong – I am THRILLED to be a living in this city and watching it develop
    constantly and quickly but it also worries and confuses me sometimes.
    Ok, done with my deep thought.
