  • An interesting Museum. Various showrooms including external site with cars and locomotives from various periods. It takes time and patience to go through all the pages and views, or trailer.

  • Bring your children and enjoy charm of old days. Steam locomotives, old fashioned carriages, trophy carriages, stamps, equipment, end hundreds of other small items related to the railway of Israel. There two buildings separated by railway. There's a bridge connecting them.
  • Really nice museum showing railway history in Israel. A bit small, but has some unique exhibitions of really old locomatives.
  • Nice museum, with several old (+100yrs)locomotives. The guide was knowable and controlled the group. Nice experience
  • The museum is located in a railroad facility that is not easy to navigate, and frankly - does not offer much interesting things on display. The staff is minimal, and offer no additional information.
  • Great for kids , lots of trains to climb , gets pretty hot in the summer- not enough shade.

Where to stay in Haifa

Look in the German Colony district close to the port to find the main bulk of the accommodations in Haifa. With its proximity to many of the urban attractions, this area has become a modern tourism hot spot. Here, you'll discover a rich mix of luxury hotels and boutiques set in well-maintained old blocks, as well as particularly budget-friendly options such as guesthouses. Alternatively, the coastline provides plenty of upmarket hotels in the more developed neighborhoods, and a scattering of guesthouses and resorts close to the sandy beaches.
