  • The Museum was established on the basis of the collection of millionaire Hecht. He donated his collection to the University on the condition that the Museum will be open on Saturday and will be free of charge. The most interesting thing in the Museum is perhaps the collection of Jewish artists, Soutine, pissaro, Pasternak and others.

  • Much bigger than it looks from outside. Lots of interesting archeological exhibits.
  • Hosts the Ma'agan Mikhael ship, the preserved remains of a 5th century BCE boat
  • It's a great collection of artifacts from different sites displayed. There are also exhibits of numerous excavations along the Coast. Best part is that it's free.
  • Cool place to go, especially on Saturdays.
  • After years of inadequate spaces in the multifunctional building, this building, inaugurated 2006, improved the conditions of the art departments significantly. However, the planning/design is far from perfect and many spaces have limited functionality.
