#3 of 17 in Museums in Haifa
Perched on a hilltop with scenic views of the bay, Sculptures Garden (Gan Hapsalim) displays 29 bronze sculptures by Berlin-born artist Ursula Malbin. Walk across the green grass lawns past sculptures representing children and teenagers playing with balls, hoops, kittens, and birds. A significant number of statues are nudes, which prompted a group of Orthodox Jews to make the unusual request that the artist dress them.

  • Free entrance, quite and serene, beautiful statues of people and nonhuman animals in movement. Nice place for leisurely walks or picnics, and close enough to Baha’i Gardens that you may as well stop here on your way if you have a morning or afternoon to explore the city. I was here in winter, and it was beautiful and impressively green - probably more lush and stunning in summer with everything in bloom! A bit difficult to find but you get there if you follow Google Maps exactly.
  • Many beautiful bronze sculptures are placed in a nice garden in Haifa. Situated on a high place there is magnificent view of Haifa bay.
  • Very nice park with amazing view to Haifa (Hadar, BatGalim, downtown) and nearby cities. Sculptures are great, many bushes and trees
  • Very relaxing park to walk through with very unique and beautiful sculptures. People clean up after themselves and keep the noise level at a minimum.
  • Magical place: it's located on a hillside, you can visit it when coming down from the top of the hill to the downtown. There are many sculptures and they are worth seeing, it's also fun for children.
