Ralli museum, Caesarea, Caesarea

4.8
Two pristine museums located under one site, Ralli museum, Caesarea houses a diverse range of Latin American art and Spanish Jewish cultural history. The first museum sits within a lush 40 hectare (98.8 acre) garden pavilion scattered with sculptures. Five exhibition halls built in Spanish colonial style contain hundreds of works, including a vast collection of pieces by the eccentric Salvador Dali. Cross the pavilion to the second museum, constructed in the Moorish architectural style, to see its permanent collection of European art from the 16th to 18th centuries, spread across four floors. Out in the courtyard, marble sculptures represent prominent Jewish figures around a solemn fountain. Before you visit Caesarea, use our trip planner to discover what you can do and see there.

  • A small museum is in two buildings. Enough hours for inspection. You can go on the road from Tel Aviv to Haifa. The Museum is free. Parking is free of charge. View interesting small sculptures.

  • In this museum I got, I think, on Monday it is closed (it is necessary to clarify the information on the site), and somehow we came it was in a non-working day and not able to visit this wonderful place. Note that Museum you visit is absolutely free! This place is on the content of the billionaire. In the main building presents works of artists from Latin America, mostly surrealism. Also on the ground floor are presented archeological finds discovered in Caesarea and shows the history of archaeological excavations. But the Crown Jewel of this institution, in my opinion, is a large collection of miniatures and works of the great Salvador Dalí. Despite the fact that I was in his Theater-Museum in Spain, this show me impressed and surprised. Taking pictures is prohibited. There are also another building with works on biblical themes. There are exhibited and Israeli artists of our time, but I preferred to stay inspired by Salvador Dalí and visit another building planned for next time.

  • Great museum. Wonderful art. Recommended international attraction.
  • Incredible site. The museum has quite a bit of Dali on exhibit
  • Excellent art collection. Beautiful buildings. Lots of free parking. Not sure the history presented in the sculpture garden is accurate though.
  • I love this place it's well handled and fun to grownups and children
  • 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.
