​​I’m going to Shean Nights, how about you?
Bet Shean National Park invites you to see history come alive with the spectacular audiovisual show Shean Nights. Come and enjoy an unforgettable experience for the whole family.

Shean Nights – you have to see it to believe it​
Shean Nights is a unique nighttime tour with complex audiovisual displays that bring back to life a vibrant ancient city and events that took place over the thousands of years of Bet Shean’s history.

During the visit you’ll see an audiovisual show in astonishing three-dimension:

  1. You’ll enter the city gate and walk down the colonnaded street
  2. You’ll meet the figures who came from the Fertile Crescent to trade in the markets of Bet Shean
  3. You’ll meet figures that come alive after thousands of years
  4. You’ll visit the bathhouse
  5. You’ll stand at the foot of the Temple of Dionysus in a kind of a time capsule, a moment before the great earthquake
  6. You’ll end with a visit to the city’s spectacle in the Roman theater


Year round on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings (weather permitting), not including holiday eves. The show begins just after dark.
