“very instructive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2012

If you like archeology and history you will enjoy this museum . it is very friendly , you walk through a town under siege by romans, then you are a phenician trader caring for your cargo of amphoras. everything is explained and you want to go digging...
But don't forget the collection of impressionism and ecole de paris paintings . and it's free...you are on haifa university campus so have a look around.

“Outstanding collections, beautifully exhibited...a must-see!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2012

This wonderful museum a must-see. Located on the campus of Haifa University it beautifully displays the vast collection of antiquities and French (mostly) Jewish impressionist art which Dr. Hecht bequeathed to the university. The carefully restored Ma'agan Mikael 2,400 year old ship is proudly displayed with its cargo. And the view is beautiful!

“Great little museum and in the Haifa University see you get the view!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2012

This museum has one of the best collections of antiquities along with an interesting collection of Impressionists. It is small enough to visit in an hour, yet rich enough to deserve the trip. Moreover one can use the visit to see the vista from the University campus.
