Clandestine Immigration and Naval Museum is a wealth of exhibits including a sub-marine. The museum has done a very good job of presenting example of navel equipment used in the creation of Israel.

What a wonderful museum. Learning about the history of the Jews who came in surreptitiously was informative and entertaining. This is a great museum to visit and plan to spend a couple of hours.

We would like to spend one day, a Sunday, in Jaffa. Where is this museum located in relation to Hagana Square, the Visitors Center in Kadumim Square and the Flea Market? Is it walkable or best to use a taxi? Thanks Carolynn
