Displaying the Agriculture, Horticulture, and Archeology of the Ancient Near East

Enter the Holy Land, a replica of ancient Israel in our Biblical Botanical Garden with more than 100 temperate and tropical plants. See the land of the Bible, the Holy Land – ancient Israel, in a setting of a cascading waterfall, a desert, a bubbling stream, the Jordan, which meanders through the garden from Lake Kineret to the Dead Sea. Brochures and books are available. All plants are labeled. A Biblical verse accompanies each plant.

We feature biblical plants as well as numerous plants with biblical names.  Such plants demonstrate the universal love of the Bible as people in each century gave local plants a biblical name such as ‘Moses in the Basket’ or ‘Joseph’s Coat.’

Each season we focus on a special theme of ancient Near Eastern  horticulture and add plants grown in neighboring Egypt or Mesopotamia  and possibly in ancient Israel, the Holy  Land.   Some themes, such as this year’s are carried to modern times. Our theme 2014 DINING WITH QUEEN ESTHER – Food in the Late Biblical Period

Times:  June 1 to September 15 – Sunday through Thursday 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Wednesday also 7 p.m.- 9 p.m. (June-August) Saturday Noon – 1 p.m.  No admission charge, handicapped access.  Group Tours (eight or more) by appointment.  4905  5th Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA.  Oakland/Shadyside, near Carnegie-Mellon, Pitt, and WQED
