I thought this sounded like a really boring museum, and oh was I ever wrong! It's the entire history of everything maritime in one of the oldest and historically rich parts of the world! Part archaeology museum, part anthropological/ ethnographic, part Pirates! They have awesome stuff dug out of the sea nearby, from an ancient Greek trireme battering ram (the... 更多
We were disappointed with this museum, which us in an older buikding and not modern nor up-to-date (lighting etc). There are a number of large models of boats which are interesting to look at, for a moment. There are exhibits and displays of findings from the sea and the beach. Some rooms seem to be old library resource rooms. This... 更多
These are two museums dedicated to the sea. The first one is more to sea the vessels, even to enter some of them. And the second one is a real museum with archaeological and historical artifacts.
I enjoyed my visit to this museum very much. The displays are all clearly labelled, with background information in Hebrew and English, though only occasionally in Arabic. The first floor is dedicated to ancient seafaring and underwater archeology, and I enjoyed it very much. There is a very good film on ancient seafaring technology in English, with Hebrew subtitles, which... 更多
The national maritime museum in Haifa is relatively a small one and as such tries to show a little bit of everything , e.g. from pirates life to ancient Egyptian rowing and sailing vessels, while old amphorae raised from the sea are scattered around. As such its displays are disjointed, failing to provide the visitor of any focused theme. However... 更多
Exhibitions - very interesting. attractions for the whole family. Various exhibits that teach maritime history and archeology from the area. General guidance on Saturdays, workshops for children. one of the best places to visit :)
As a kid I loved model everything...ships were my favorite! This museum has rthe best ship models anywhere and they have a reconstructed sea-faring galley ship from waaaaayyyyy a long time ago.
We thought the museum was very interesting in presenting the history of maritime in the area. There were also several modern videos that were very interesting. A small museum, as are most of the Haifa museums, but worth a visit, especially if the multiple museum ticket is still available. Ask about it as it offers 5 museums for almost the... 更多
old. dull. boring. not for value at all. Unfortunately, we have better things to do with our time. I visited the museum with my family and with the kids on a few Pirates birthday parties and the place is as old as I remembered it from the age of 10...
This museum has rare centuries old artifacts detailing trade in the Mediterranean. Definitely worth seeing for those interested in development... 更多
