Could have been better
Feb 2020
There are some interesting items in this center which is under the ground and an archeological site. There were a couple of films which were really aimed at children and so wasted a lot of time (unless you are with children) It is hard to find, and one has to make reservations ahead of time and the website is only in Hebrew

We got in

We got into this as another group was going in. Guess that we were lucky because after that the barrier was put in place. It was an interesting exhibit.

Closed to casual visitors

I was so disappointed to find the Visitors' Centre to be closed to individuals but only open to tour groups. There was no explanation given. There were plenty of people milling around in the square - an insult to people who don't want to join mass tours.

Definitely go to the old stone part of the port, there are signs pointing to the artist galleries. This area is fascinating and has undergone some beautiful restoration. Don’t miss the Andromeda Rock. And, if you have time, enjoy the movie.

Open only for groups? Bad Idea!
Apr 2018 • Friends
I live in Israel and have brought many times friends and family from abroad to this place. When I did the same thing yesterday with a family of friends at their first visit to Israel I had the very unpleasant experience to find the place closed for occasional visitors. Why? This is a good place to learn about the history of Jaffa and it was for many years open to all at a price worth paying. Somebody who seemed to be in charge told me that this is a decision taken a few months ago by the company of development of Jaffa (?) who are now managing this site. Bad Idea!

Poor information and it was shut
Dec 2017
With no notice why it was shut, and a rather sad pathetic caravan in its place, the main centre was shut. it is clear that you need to plan in advance for this place. The website is in IVRIT, so don't base your visit on going to this place. I have to say that they could have done a bit more. Most places around were open

The landmark place for travellers !
Dec 2017 • Family
This center located within old Jaffa city is an answer to the travellers who needs to know the lore of the place and also wants to the history since the ancient times . Easily accessible by walking and living dated within the charming old city in the midst of the hub - guides today . A great way to know the past glory !

Does the job

The visitor centre gives a nice little overview of Old Jaffa, so it's nice to have a little background while walking through the old city.
