  • Actually it is one of most intriguing things i see in acre lately. In fact i didn't know about it. Somehow there is no advertising of this place. The place is former British prison where many zionist were prosecuted. Prison is upper floors of crusader castle so it is builded in very interesting way. Entrance is actually very cheap only 15 shekels.
  • OK, but not a must see. You will get to see a prison in the 40s of the last century. They added some puppets to present more than just empty chairs and desks, but unless you have a knack for prisons, morbid history or the Jewish fight against the British protectorate over Palestine there is no reason to pay for the entrance to this little museum. It does come with its own parking space though, so you don't have to walk to this place.
  • מקום מרשים. חוויה למבוגרים וילדים. כולל סיור (צריך להזמין מראש הדרכה ) סרטונים והמחשה. יש אוזניות שמע לקטעים השונים. Very impressive and moving experience. Includes a guided tour (need to order in advance), movies illustrating the period and prison life. Good for grown-ups and kids as well
  • must visited. they made it interesting for any age
  • Distorted history, nothing much really going on there.
