The old Turkish
Railway Station has been renovated and developed, and its historic buildings
have undergone restoration. Today it is
a unique cultural, recreational and entertainment venue in Be'er‑Sheva. It was built in 1915 by the Ottoman Empire as
part of their war effort versus the British, by the engineer Heinrich August Meissner (Pasha), who was
responsible for the Hejaz railway that connected Damascus to Al-Madina, Saudi Arabia. The renewed complex offers a plethora of attractions: an interactive
mini-museum of the Israel Railways, a gourmet restaurant, changing exhibitions,
authentic train carriages, an original steam engine and more.
