We especially enjoyed this tiny museum because it gave us a chance to show our five years old daughter the way some things, like ironing, shoemaking, pottery were made about a hundred years ago. It was real fun for her. Probably wouldn’t find this place so interesting if we were alone.

Hidden away in the old Acre Walls is this small, but beautiful little museum of life in Acre. It not big with major exhibits. It is professionally run and you can feel the love that curators had in collecting the items for display. Everything is organised perfectly with love and care that would put many museums to shame. The exhibits are humble, but well selected and every exhibit has at least a page of documentation in Hebrew and English. On it's own, the entrance would be quite expensive. However, you can go as part of the Acre Combined ticket and it would be well worth it.

We were not going to bother with this museum but decided to go due to the free entrance tickets we received at the Crusader Fortress. It is located right out back of the Akko Youth Hostel. We were so pleasantly surprised by what we found inside. The museum is housed in an old fortress type structure, but has nothing to do with the crusades, but with olden times. Things like old printing presses, old ice boxes, old games, old tools etc - mainly an antique museum but such an interesting array of antiques.We thought it would be a quick in and out but found ourselves really taken with all of the exhibits which were extremely interesting and so well laid out and organized. Out back outside there was also a very nice garden to sit in with some antiques as well. Glad we partook in the adventure.

It's a total waste of time, not worth visiting. A dusty exhibition that looks like a cheap brocante in France with rummage laying around.

This museum was part of our combined ticket we bought when we visited the Crusader Fortress. It's a short walk as it's near the Old City. There's a large grassy area for kids to run around in and a great view. We were 20 people from age 7 to 75. Everyone enjoyed it, which was surprising. There are sections for old toys, farming, foods, fashion, among others. It's like rummaging around an attic and finding memories of childhood or later years. Something of interest for everyone. However, these are items from Israeli history and famiies so might not be of interest to regular tourists.

This is a charming museum. It's actually built into the ancient walls of the old city of Akko. To get there, you have not go up onto the ramparts and find the entrance. It is totally worth the effort. The museum is divided into different "shops" like a pharmacy, hat maker, carpenter and each is beautifully displayed showing the crafts of northern israel/ Lebanon from 100-150 us ago, lovely little garden to relax and take a break,too

The museum is probably the most interesting one in the Akko area and it hosts a great variety of artifacts from the city and country history: from furniture and pottery to books and currency. The exposition is packed with different materials and well presented. It's well worth visiting if you're in the Akko. Also, you can save some money by buying a combo ticket in the Tourist Center if visiting other places and museums in Old Akko.

My uncle recommended me to pay a visit there and boy, that was a worth while experience. too bad the place is not bigger because it's soooooo interesting. It's like walking back in a time machine - inside the museum you can see all kind of workshops for different crafts as if the craftsmen just left their workshops for a minute and they will soon come back.
I wish they would add live demonstrations, or maybe on video...
Among the workshops you can find: carpenter, blacksmith, tinsmith, goldsmith, pharmacy, shoemaker, hat maker, saddle-maker, belt-maker, different shops, different styles of living rooms, old currencies collections, arts, toys and food from the history, etc... They have many different collections.
The price is very reasonable: 15 Shekels per adult. And they offer discounts for different people (i.e. students, etc..)

I found this disappointing, it looked much more like an old antique shop. It seemed rather a random assortment of old stuff, from the name I was expecting more like actual treasure!!
