Impressive Museum
Aug 2020
This museum is part of the Harry Recanati Foundation. It is a non-profit institution There are two buildings at the Caesarea site.

The first building contains Contemporary Latin American Art including beautiful sculptures both inside the main building and the grounds. There is a lovely terrace exhibiting beautiful sculptures. The building itself is very beautiful.

The second floor has a large exhibition of sculptures of Salvadore Dali.
On the ground floor exhibitions of Herodium & Roman history of the area, which is also very interesting.

The second building is dedicated to the honour of Sephardi Jewish History.
The building is very Spanish/Moorish & the statues of celebrated historical figures in the courtyard is very impressive.

Although I had visited this museum many years ago, it was the first time that I have visited the Honary Sephardi building.

We took our 10 year old granddaughter & she enjoyed it very much.
Well worth visiting.

I found it somehow refreshing to enjoy the art gallery without a guide-and I don't like art galleries)When you are looking at the picture without someone telling the story behind it-its totally different experience-you see and understand from your own point of view.So we learned there were a lot of wells in the Biblical times)))
So free of charge,not crowded,beautiful sculptures and pictures-i didn't regret

Surprising and impressive collections in a gorgeous setting
Jan 2020
A unique opportunity to see a mix of classical biblical art in one building and some glorious modern, generally Sephardi works. Especially impressive are the modern statues in the gallery depicting S. American woman. Also very powerful surrealism.
The place is free, but minimal explanation or signage.

A definite must for art lovers. Numerous Latin American and Spanish artists paintings and sculptures. 2 beautifully laid out museums next to each other and they are free! The bonus is a collection of Salvador Dali sculptures and Magritte lithographs.

Vibrant and usual art museum
Dec 2019
The Ralli museums are a charitable international group of art Museum specialising in Spanish and South American art. Number 1 & 2 are collocated in Cesarea. 1 has a wonderful vibrant collection of such art, including about 50 Dali sculptures, mainly bronzes. Number 2 is titled the Sephardic Jewry memorial and exhibits old master originals depicting Biblical scenes (lots of fun playing name the scene with bible story familiar kids!). The museums are free but there is no shop, guidance or much information (otherwise I would give 5 stars). Really fun though.

2 Free Museums for the price of one art lovers welcome

So much art in 2 museums. Need at least 4 hours. No guided tours there or audio visual equipment. Was there 1.5 hours and barely got through one museum. Do not miss the Salvador Dali sculptures. Latin American art. Big exhibit on Rene Magritte.Archaeological section on the city. This is a place to return to many times and explore the art. No cafe or gift shop there. If possible, try to learn about some of these artists before going because it does make the experience more valuable and enjoyable..

Very enjoyable museum and it's free!

I was astounded by this museum. I had never heard of it and my cousin found it on trip advisor when i offered to take him to Caesarea for the day. The design of both wings are stunning Moorish design. The history of the Sephardic people was interesting, and the archaeological displays were very useful for later visiting the archaeology sites which are huge. But what was fantastic was the art museum. The Latin american art was very interesting. The Dali sculptures were stunning. The 17th and 18th century biblical art was interesting and there were even a few top ranked artists such as Rubens, Tintoretto and Van Dijk. Los of parking. Easy to get to. It is a real gem. There is a Magritte exhibit and the Paul Kors exhibit was especially interesting. Thank you Mr. Recanati.
