Great tour that starts every 5-10 minutes, full of humor and history. It's amazing how interesting can become a tour with multimedia

You wait to enter and are then stuck watching a poor video for way too long a time. We couldn't wait to get out. Then you get another audio guide for way too long in the hammam. It might be more interesting if you could just walk thru in five or ten minutes. Skip this!

The best way to describe the presentation is childish. Movie is informative but so childish it is hard to watch. You are stuck in the movie hall and then stuck in the bath house. Not really recommended.

Get a combo ticket to save if you will visit the crusader's fortress or other nearby attractions. The short movie is insightful and funny.

Good way to familiarize yourself with a Hamamatsu. The movie shown is interesting and covers the story of the hamam and of El Jazar, the builder and the man that beat Napoleon when he tried to conquer Acre. The movie is entertaining. The place well maintained. Worth visiting, if time allows.

An audio visual show in the authentic location of the Turkish Hammam which brings to life the tradition of long gone days.

Awful movie tour that does little to teach you about the history of Akko. Convoluted facts and mildly racist portrayal of the Arabs makes this attraction something truly worth missing. Also the guy at the front desk was eating a tuna sandwich while talking to us in a disinterested manner .... very off-putting.

Tacky tour (the movie at the beginning), but a cool building to see! Sad it's not functioning, but the smoke machines give you a good idea what it would have been like (without suffering through the heat). Very well done displays, you really get a sense for how people used the space.
