    My wife and I, while visiting family and friends in Israel were taken to the Ralli Museum in Caesarea. While we have been to Israel many times and have even been to Caesarea several times, this "Gem" ...  more »

    Wonderful Museum, in two buildings. In the first of the paintings, Dalí sculptures, the slot floor of archaeology with caesare site models. In the second of the paintings and now an exhibition on Pissarro and his family. Surprising to find Impressionist paintings of french place... I recommend highly as it's free!

    Very beautiful Museum, there is a large parking lot. The Museum is open on Saturday. The exhibition is also very beautiful.

    Excellent art collection. Beautiful buildings. Lots of free parking. Not sure the history presented in the sculpture garden is accurate though.

    Two of the five Ralli museums are located in Caesaria. They host works of latin america impressionists including Salvador Dali. My favorite one is named: "Cuatro personas con perro blanco" by Guilermo Gucemas. You see four persons sitting with plastic bags on their heads causing suffocation; and a very evil dog at their legs prevents them from putting off the bags. It's free of charge. Paintings here are really good. There are several sculptures in the inner yard of the second museum and in the gallery of the first one. There's also medallion collection and a bit of archaeology. You will enjoy roman architecture, conditioned air and silence.

    A gem well worth a visit. A unique insight into South American art.
