The Historical Archive of Kiryat Tivon is also known as "Tivon Documentation Center". Its Mission is to preserve and develop the historical heritage of the town. The Archive is operated by volunteers living in Kiryat Tivon.
The main goal of the archive is to preserve archival material and to collect further documentary material such as: "Family Albums" of residents in order to study the daily life of Kiryat Tivon's people throughout the years; Initiating interviews to discover "life stories" with the help of high school students and adult volunteers in order to build a database of oral documentation; Initiating publications, lectures and guided tours of local historical sites; and Developing interest in the past among the young generation as an investment in the future through building feelings of honor and pride toward the heritage of the town and the older generation.
One of the historical archives' most popular achievements is the establishment of a permanent exhibition inside the town's historic Water Tower. Located across the road from the Memorial Center building, this exhibition documents and describes the history of Kiryat Tivon from its beginning to the present. The archive staff conducts tours of the exhibition for students and other visitors.
