SemiOpen Museum
Nov 2019 • Family
Unfortunately closed on Friday not like most of museums
Officially in the newspapers opens on Saturday at 1000AM
Arriving 1018 horrible guard non polite shouting go away
After paying quite high entrance fee you have to look for parking
The place quite neglected
Look for other more pleasant attractions in the area

German Jewry Heritage Museum
Jan 2019 • Couples
The pioneering activities of German speaking Jewry in Israel's north isn't something that receives much attention, so we were happy to avail ourselves of a recent long weekend there to expand our horizons. Located in the Tefen industrial zone, the German speaking Jewry heritage museum provided a good perspective on the subject in a well-kept space peppered with impressive art objects. This site is one of a number of museums included in the Open Museum expanse, well worth the time of visitors.

rip-off - stay away!
Aug 2018 • Family
The car museum is very neglected, no AC, neglected cars with missing paint etc.. no respectful WC... very old building with bad floor. overall very misleading,i would strongly recommend to shut it down this is crazy it is even open to the public, no staff to complain as well, an open air show in the mall is 10x better... We have been here with 2 kids, overall 4 tickets - 140 NIS, this was shameful. the grounds and place are nice... but this is simply not enough, everything is old and outdated. we have been to the main building and take a cookie decoration workshop, this was very nice activity, very nice personal and the kids had fun, but again i would never go there again! this is a one time "sting" unfortunately this is near my house, and it could be nice if it wasn't that way...

Went to the German museum founded by my Mother's teacher. Even found a picture of my mother in the museum. Found it very nostalgic and had a great tour.

Interesting Find in the Lower Galilee
Dec 2016
This Industrial Park has multiple museum locations on the grounds. The first has a history of how the Ashkenazi Jews of Europe, mostly from Germany with some from Austria and Poland, influenced the founding of the State of Israel. Beginning in the 1900s, European Jewry wanted to foster a Jewish homeland in the region known as Palestine. It was still under turkish rule at that time, until after WW I, when the British took control. People with skills as politicians, authors, architects, journalists, agriculture and wine making specialists, infrastructure development and other specialties provided their expertise. Their individual contributions and collective result are featured in this museum. There is another facility with a collection of vintage cars and a third displays the work of a sculpture who used various materials to make life like sculptures of men, women and children. There are also some craft shops but they are only open during certain days of the week.

A must visit to open your eyes
Jun 2016 • Couples
The open museum is a concept of gallery, old cars exhibition, and one man vision.
It is a reflection of Israel at its best.
Visit the gallery, cars exhibition, see the green loans and listen to the silence. Most recommended

Great museum way up north
Apr 2016
In the Tefen Industrial Park you will find a collection of terrific museums including an outstanding fine art museum, an auto museum (housing part of Eitan Wertheimer's auto collection), and a German Jewish heritage museum. You could spend an entire day in these places--these are a gem.

A unique place and very worthwhile
Jul 2014 • Couples
This place does not seem to be advertised widely and is not very easy to find but if you head for Tefen and look out for the brown signs you will come to the entrance of a small industrial estate where a security guard will sell you a ticket for 25 shekel. This ticket buys you access via a wrist band to the industrial estate which I was told was set up by a billionaire Israeli industrialist who wanted to encourage others to innovate and provide them with a place to carry out their ideas so you have a few businesses such as a Druze business selling high end soap and a small scale potter who you can but souvenirs from but you also have an eclectic mix of small museums and galleries.

The art gallery was showing some very interesting and colourful art by a modern Israeli artist. There is a permanent colllection of vintage cars from the 1930's to the 1990's as far as I could understand all of these cars have been driven in Israel and a couple were even built in Israel. The industrial museum has examples of machines used in Israeli manufacturing from the 1940s and 1950s as well as a colection of ancient relics and ethnic pieces. Finally there is the museum of German immigrents to Israel and here you can spend a couple of hours easily learning about how German immigrents have helped build the current Israeli society.

There is a coffee shop and a canteen which caters for the estate workers but you can buy a decent 3 course meal for 39 shekel. There are plenty of toilets, sculptures to walk around and green spaces to sit and while away some time.

You can easily spend half a day here. Some museums seem to shut lunchtime and all attractions close at 4pm.
