Very close to the Baha'i Gardens this small museum is worth a visit. Interesting art collection & great views. If the multiple museum ticket is still available it is very worthwhile. All the Haifa museums are small but well worth visiting if the cost is low, as we were able to do on the single ticket.

Very small personable gallery with fascinating collection, in a remodeled house on the cliff overlooking Haifa. Historically interesting building and art pieces. Gorgeous garden and views. Easy to get to if you are staying up on Jefe Nof area. Located between the Dan Carmel and the Crowne Plaza hotels.

Small but well displayed & interesting collection. Beautiful view & good snack at the cafe. Recommend buying multi-museum ticket. The Japanese art museum is also very close.

It is a great small art museum. Suggest to arrive when the museum provides guided tours. Prepare for a nice hour and than coffee in the back poarch. Loved it.

This is a small gallery: four rooms, about 100 paintings. Well worth visiting if you're already up near the Louis Promenade. Guides quite knowledgeable and multi-lingual, although my timing was terrible; they were only doing yours in Hebrew at the hour I stopped by. Fascinating look at the intersections between Jewish art and Israeli history.

This museum is located in the former home of the artist. It is small, but located overlooking Haifa bay, which is gorgeous. There are special exhibitions, and I visited in order specifically to see the exhibition on Avantgarde and the Jews. The tour was good; there were some very interesting items in the exhibition. At the same time, one could... More

This is very special place. Small, quite with limited but quality exhibition. For art lovers. Not for children.

This is a tiny museum, with something over 100 pieces in 4 small-ish rooms. There are only a few by Mane Katz himself, which was fine with me. The rest are from his collection of Jewish painters, many from the late 1800s and early Twentieth century. There are a handful of pieces that kept my attention. I was particularly drawn... More

Mane Katz was a well-known Israeli artist whose collection is shown in this museum from the late 1970s. If you're into contemporary art from an artist who won the Legion of Honor for his work, stop here. You won't be disappointed, also there is a beautiful view of Haifa Bay from the top of Mt. Carmel.

Entrance costs NIS 30 per person, and you walk along everything in 30-40 min. If you stay at one of Haifa's hotel for two nights or more - you can choose a free entrance to this museum as your present. I found interest in both exhibitions in August - Marc Chagall's dialogue with biblical stories, and Yosl Bergner's sculptures.
