  • 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.
