Outstanding underrated museum
Jan 2020 • Couples
This is a truly superb museum. It has one of the finest collections of archaeological specimens anywhere, but when we were there, there were only about 6-8 visitors in total. And it is free. Excellent display on development of written text.
There are some unique specimens from underwater archaeology off the Caesarea,/ Haifa coast.
And also a fine collection of pictures, Jewish art, impressionist and post impressionist.
Easily the highlight of our visit to Haifa.

I came from abroad to Haifa only to visit hecht museum. It was hard and expensive trip. I checked the official site several times, l wanted to be sure it is open. But it was not. Some guy told us it was open in the morning, then its lazy staff just closed the door and went home.

Very interesting archaeology and art exhibit
Oct 2019 • Couples
Enjoy an Impressive visit to the Reuben and Edith Hecht Museum in Haifa. It displays the archaeology and history of the Land of Israel in chronological sequence. It is situated right underneath the main building of Haifa University. From ancient Canaanite artefacts and burial coffins to a history of the Phoenicians who traded wood and oil across the Mediterranean and developed a scripture that forms the basis of our present day alphabet. What kind of ships and anchors did they use? How did they store the fragile amphora's in their ships so they wouldn't break? On the second floor the museum has several art exhibits, amongst which a display of paintings by Jewish artists, who perished during the Second World War. This place is well worth a visit!

Excellent museum
Apr 2019
The museum is part of the University of Haifa - rather far from the city but worth the trouble! The exhibition mainly consists of the archaeological finds of the area but it is very modern, up-to-date and really fresh, quite different from exhibitions of this type in other countries. Also, quite large for a university museum. There is also an arts section and currently a temporary exhibition on early archaeological photography: fascinating!

Excellent little archaeology museum. Well documented thematic exhibits, including crafts (wood, glass, metal, mosaics). Great exhibit on Jewish revolt. Very worthwhile. Great view. Go!

Very fascinating, full of history and ancient artifacts. The highlights of which is the 2000 years old ancient ship discovered off the coast of Haifa. A place to visit indeed.

Beautiful museum!
Jan 2018 • Friends
This is a lovely museum, hidden away in the Haifa University. It’s located in the administration tower of the University which is the highest point on Mount Carmel. Not many people even know it exists, but it is well worth visiting. It covers history of the Middle East, and lots of archeology. It’s a very interesting museum, and best of all, it’s totally free!

A lot of history
Aug 2017 • Solo
Very interesting museum that gives you the history of the whole area. The real treat is going the elevator upstairs to the top floor where you see a magnificent paranorama view of Haifa.Easy to get there by bus.
