In the old building of the Technion High school of Technology in the Hadar quarter of Central Haifa, several years is functioning a very interesting museum dedicated science and technology, most of the exhibits are accessible and not like in ordinary museums you see the sign of "don't touch" here the sign says "touch please!" You have to try everything... More

Seriously overpriced for what it is. Don't bother. Have a lovely dinner with a bottle of wine in the German Colony instead.

The medatech is one of the most interesting, challenging and at the same time pure fun for kids of all ages. We have visited it several times as the main exposition changes from time to times. The kids enjoyed it every time even though they grew older over the years. We the parents enjoyed it all the same. It gives... More

We visited in January with our family which included 6 children ranging in age from 2-16. There was a lot to see but no staff to guide us or answer questions. Additionally, the bathrooms had a terrible smell and needed to be cleaned. Parking was an issue as the parking lot had a sign that it was full however there... More

There are many science museums in Israel. I researched a lot and was told this is one of the best. It's inside a building with lots of history (used to be a Technion University site). Exhibits need better maintenance and some were boring to me. I have seen much better science museums elsewhere (Barcelona comes to mind at the top... More

Since I was little I keep coming back to this place, and see how some things stay familiar, and others keep changing and getting better. Last year they built a floor just for young children (one y/o and up), where they can play and build. The whole place is full of explanations and activities for all ages. If you're coming... More

It's an interactive science museum which has many exhibitions and games that children can play with, have fun and learn during the process. The kids (5 and 7 years old) liked best the outdoor playground with the science-games, the 3D movie (we've seen one about the universe) and the space exhibition (a temporary part that changes periodically). In general we've... More
