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.

Not large (4 rooms), but has a beautiful collection of Chagal and Mane-Katz. The Chagal paintings in particular are fascinating - the longer we looked at them, the more we saw

We were lucky enough to be there for the Chagall exhibit, but the works by other artists from the Jewish School of Paris (who knew?) we're also very worthwhile. Quite moving after visiting the Western Wall and the Diaspora Museum.

Come and see Chagal exhibition. On display are Chagal, Mane Katz and their contemporaries - all works deal with Jewish themes. Good free of charge tours on Saturday in Hebrew and Russian. Really nice works loaned from many Israeli museums. Recommended.

Among all the works by Chagall at the exhibition, Mané-Katz own stood out. Large paintings, especially a landscape and men at a well, were powerful in many ways. The museum sells a (heavy) book where a lot is explained and shown, for example the artist´s diversity and use of colors.

Small museum with unique exhibits, this year it was Chagall, last year Judaica, both exhibits were well worth the visit. This is a small museum and exhibits can be viewed easily within an hour or two. Walking distance from the Dan Panorama Hotel.

Museums often suffer from the perennial problems of money,money and money. The Mane Katz Museum hosts a number of great pieces of art and one feels that while the museum does its best with what is available, the museum could really use some additional space to show this and additional works by the artist. Furthermore, the magnificent view from the... More
