The site is dedicated to the three religious kibbutz towns in the area. The ground floor of the museum presents photographs of the story of Kibbutz Sa’ad during the War of Independence.

The access to the site is through the entrance road to Kibbutz Kfar Aza. The old security building of Kibbutz Saad was renovated and now serves as an active site with exhibitions and films telling the story of the battle over the area, emphasizing the story of the 3 religious kibbutz settlements in the Negev during the War of Independence.

In addition, there are original telegrams describing events from the war. The exhibition demonstrates the struggle of the warriors who were in shortage of weapons, food and water and had to spend days and nights digging underground.

On the second floor there is an audiovisual exhibition, describing the atmosphere in Israel during the war, the part played by the 27 isolated towns in the south, which had 1,000 people opposite 150,000 people in the Gaza Strip, the placing of the water pipe and the iniquities of the Palmach. The overlook from the roof uses viewing boards to show the city of Gaza, the Mediterranean sea, the electronic border system, the enemy posts, our posts from the days of the War of Independence, the border passage near Nachal Oz, the outskirts of Ashkelon and the neighboring towns.
