  • 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.
  • Pretty nice, was for free and showed a lot of history.
  • Nice visit in Akko. Much to learn and easy to navigate
  • Learn what the British did to the Jewish freedom fighters.
