Launch of the Moshe Novomeisky Visitor Center

The Dead Sea Works, situated at the southern end of the Tamar Region, launched this week its long awaited Visitors Centre. A unique insight to the start of a journey that is seeped in history and stories.


The Council for the Preservation of Buildings and Sites has been an integral part of the process of rehabilitating and preserving the labor camp from the day it began decades ago, and within that was a significant part of the steering committee for the establishment of the Visitors Center at the Dead Sea Works. The Council for the Preservation of Buildings and Sites also invested millions of shekels in the restoration of the site, including the restoration of the old dining room, the administration house (mud house) and the defense house, as well as the restoration of locomotives, carriages and tracks used in the 1930s and 1940s.

The Tamar Regional Council accompanied the process of rehabilitating the camp and establishing the visitor center, supported and assisted in advancing the plans and permits which gave impetus to the advancement of the project.

In the presence of Minister Zeev Elkin, the Moshe Novomeisky Visitor Center was launched. Moshe Novomeisky was an Israeli engineer and businessman. He was an early developer of the Palestine Potash Company, precursor of the Dead Sea Works. It was an historic day, a day in which a vision becomes a reality of an industry that has established a heritage and created a common discourse.

The Dead Sea Works industry is a legacy of Israel that exists between our regional industry, tourism and residents who live alongside the giant corporation, a collaboration that has proved itself for decades, and that is exactly how populating the region must be maintained.
