A gem of a museum certainly - I could have spent many hours perusing the various exhibits but my husband grew impatient waiting in the arts dept so we left earlier than I would have liked to. Each item was clearly explained and documented and sets the stage of the time in which it was made. The most fascinating items for me was to see coffins of burials in the area similar to those made in Egypt, but minus the artistry.

Nothing really special here. Lots of small things from around the area. If you are into the local area history do go.

This museum, located on the premises of Haifa University, has a spectacular collection of regional historical artifacts including the Canaanite equivalent of mummies that are not to be missed.

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.

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!
