Located in the northern part of the Hula valley, the Prehistoric Man Museum in Kibbutz Mayan Baruch is a lifework of its member Amnon Asaf. Exploring the Hula Valley and the streams that join the Jordan River, Amnon created a vast collection of 140,000 stone tools, ranging from 780,000 to 12,000 years ago. The Museum showcases a wide variety of this collection and other prehistorical artifacts, including several burials.

Dating to the Natufian period (about 14,000 years ago), this is among the earliest evidence of dog domestication.
