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.

  • Caesarea-from the word Caesar, i.e. the King. It is not surprising, therefore, that here there was this truly imperial Museum. Such museums family Rally just a few in the world. He focuses on Latino-American art (but there are Spaniards, in particular many sculptures Dalí. Very interesting and skillfully Exposition (bearing in mind that the work of Latin American artists usually great. And the building of the Museum was designed too the Latin American spirit. In short, if you find yourself in Caesarea, be sure to visit this museum. (It's in the Center, next to the Golf Club) free entrance to the Museum. Small thing but nice.

  • Great museum. Wonderful art. Recommended international attraction.
  • I love this place it's well handled and fun to grownups and children
  • Excellent art collection. Beautiful buildings. Lots of free parking. Not sure the history presented in the sculpture garden is accurate though.
  • Enjoyed every moment of it... Not the best even collection I saw, but the environment and the place are great
  • 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.
