  • The Museum is of considerable interest even though to be seen, you have to walk a lot in external environment and if it rains (as when it was me) is a disaster. Of the various pavilions I've visited, some are very interesting (for my taste) like the one concerning the coinage or vases and ceramics, unattractive ones of the local handicraft (almost trivial) and that of artistic photographs that as much as I love photography I seem to do just as the car of firemen. It seems to me that the Museum does not follow any presentation logic or conservation, but sets out a number of things to see not necessarily connected to each other.

  • Located in the north of the city is this spacious and well laid out museum. There is an entry charge. A very good shop and cafe add to the experience.
  • A mishmash of items, things. It seems everybody wanted to contribute and emptied their cellars. Some pavillions were interesting and the escavations were too, but in some parts there was trash everywhere. I would spend the 52 NS entrance fee some place else.
  • One of the main museums in Israel, hosts all kinds of exhibition. Was there as a child and now I brought my child there to an exhibition that fits her age. They have a planetarium there (Cinema only, don't expect to see real stars) and I fondly remember a dinosaur show my parents took me to as a child.
  • Excellent. The museum has a variety of art. We eent to a very interesting itinerary exposition. (On the edge isreali paper ) Well explained, and marvelous works. The other expositions were also worth. We saw season of birds photographs , Joy birds, and Fire photographs.
  • Nice exhibitions for children and adults, each on a separate building with walking distance between them. All explained in Hebrew and English. Recommended are the glass works exhibition and the coin collection. Planetarium shows for space travelers. Medium sized paid parking lot.
