I found this museum very interesting. Helps if you like old ships and history though. Lots of ships had a submarine to climb around in. Need your passport as ID to get in as a Naval facility

This is a new museum with a ship that immigrants travelled in.Being inside and see how they travelled was so moving. The guide and photos were a lesson on their lives I never heard about.

This mostly consists of movies, which tell you the story of the ship at the center of the museum, and guide you through the ship itself. But I found it fascinating. Not worth much more than an hour or so, but relatively close to Elijah's...More

I had no idea that the Israeli Navy traces its roots back to immigration ships and learned a lot from the story boards and exhibits. Well worth a visit if you're in Haifa.

The renovations are not even remotely done. While you do not specificly need a passport to get in it is the preferable ID that they prefer. Maybe in another six months they might be done if you are lucky.
