The Tabernacle

The historic connection between Timna Park and the Bible era, led to the creation of a precise replica of the Tabernacle, one of Israel’s most special sites. Timna provides the perfect desert backdrop to display this fascinating replica of the Tabernacle, built in a complete, accurate and authentic reconstruction of the appearance, dimensions, and colors of the ‘Mishkan’, used by the people of Israel, in the wilderness. 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, which entail an additional fee.

Visitors can also enjoy an evening tour of the Tabernacle – the 12 Tribes Tour. The tour combines the ecological story of Timna Park, the ancient copper extraction process and of course an evening tour of the illuminated Tabernacle.
