In the museum you can see the way the first settlers in Gedera lived, their agricultural tools, and Gedera's oldest building from the 19th century, which also contains part of the museum's exhibition.Related to:

Cafe/pub/restaurant in Gedera's most lively street. You can get drinks, snacks but also real food, such as pasta or meat. You can sit inside or outside - we sat outside watching the people and the ancient trees. It is open until the wee hours of the night so you can also go here in the evening for a beer or two with your friends.Related to:

A small Arabic restaurant, open 7 days a week unlike some other places which are closed on Saturday. We went there in the Pesach (Passover) holiday when the Jewish restaurants were closed. The restaurant is in a gas station, which is a normal thing in Israel. It might not have been the most cosy restaurant but there was still a good atmosphere, lots of happy, satisfied customers (including me) and good service.
Favorite Dish: Falafel! THE Israeli dish! I am from a small town in Denmark where falafel is hard to get, so it is was very exotic to me!
Falafel is made from chick peas and spices which is made in to balls that are deep fried. It is usually served with or in a pita with salads and pickles.
VERY YUMMY - only bad thing about it, is it gives you gas. (Maybe there is a connection to the gas station...?)Related to:

Gedera Warnings and Dangers
I was surprised to read the 2 comments left on this page.
Gedera, as in all cities, sees cars being stolen but no more than the norm. As for rock throwing and being robbed, that's complete rubbish. I've lived in Gedera for over 8 Years (my wife's family have been living here for over 60 Years) over and have never seen anything like it.
Gedera is a beautiful city situated in a valley. People of all sorts live here, including a large number of artists whom (from time to time over the year) open their houses up for people to come in and see their work.
The town has been expanding over these last few Years and with that seeing a lot of young families move into the area. People are warm and friendly here.
I hope this additional review better helps in deciding where to come and see Gedera :)
In gedera many cars are stolen, so if you bring a rental, make sure to put it behind a locked gate like the locals do, and don't leave it out. Also, in certain parts of town, especially at night but even in the day, people could rob you or throw stones at you. Just be careful at all times, but it is generally safe.
watch out for kids who throw rocks or steal. they will throw rock at you if you have good car or cell phone and take it. many cars stolen, dont leave it on street. roads arent paved. some very scary sections, many teens who have no money and will steel.
