This museum is one of the most interesting I have visited in a long time. I was particularly happy to be able to explore the interiors of so many vessels. The submarines and torpedoes being a favourites (since I work as a designer on these and related things).

The Clandestine Immigration part of the museum is also fascinating.

But do take your passport, you will need it to get in, though having said that we did get in after a short chat with the security officer at the entrance. It appears what clinched admission was having the right kind of Swiss-Army type knife!? (or maybe we just looked and sounded right for our story)

I was trying to show my two teenagers a bit abour Jewish history but we were denied access because we didn't have our passports since it's a site controlled by the Ministry of Defense. They wouldn't accept other forms of ID.

The ships are on the outside of the museum entrance so you cna visit those but this experience put us off.

Gives an in-depth account of the history. Not the most modern museum, but educational. It lists all the names of ships that participated and info about each. If any of your relatives came over then, you can get more info about the trips.
