  • המוזיאון יחסית קטן רק 2 קומות. יש הרבה דוגמאות של ספינות ממאות הביניים , שעונים, מצפנים, שרדי פסלים אבל ללא הדרכה היה ממש משעמם במיוחד לילדים קטנים. לקח לנו קצת יותר מחצי שעה כדי לראות את הכל.  more »
  • Three different sections dealing with the history of pirates in the Mediterranean Sea and the coasts of Israel, archaeological artifacts found at sea from different eras and reconstructions of the first ships of the newborn State of Israel
