  • The museum is pretty small but yet interesting. I wouldn't come here just for this museum, but combined with the Israeli Navy museum it's a good half-day activity. 
  • This is not a Museum, where you can go on ships and submarines. This museum is dedicated to maritime archaeology and ancient and ancient shipping. Are various finds, raised from the bottom, models of ancient ships and ancient, modern Israeli shipping. Illuminated theme navigation in the region. Bypass all 3 smaller floors will not take more than an hour, for fans of the show everything carefully and "dig"-1.5-2.
