The Glass Factory Museum (Ha'mizgaga)
Ha' Mizgaga - A Museum for nautical and regional archeology is housed in a two-story stone structure in the heart of Kibbutz Nahsholim, and within a short walking distance from Tel-Dor .
The building opened in 1891 by the Baron Rothschild as a factory for producing glass wine bottles. Meir Dizengoff, who was later to become mayor of Tel-Aviv, was appointed manager of the factory. Because of the numerous difficulties – malaria, the local sand's unsuitability for glassmaking, and a lack of profitability – the factory was closed and abandoned within five years of its opening. In 1980, members of Kibbutz Nahsholim began to restore the structure. At the same time archaeological excavations were begun at Tel Dor and nearby bays, and the factory became a charming and unusual museum.
Nahsholim Seaside Resort is situated on the spectacular Dor Beach, at the shore of the Mediterranean Sea, where white beaches cradle natural bays and lagoons of crystal clear water. A line of small islands stretching not far from the waterfront creates a natural, unique landscape which is a heaven for all bird watchers.
