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

It's an old and very important establishment in Haifa, that teaches kids and adults to understand science in an interactive manner. Every month or two there are special exposition, so go to their website to get info. Great to visit during the winter and also the summer since they renovated their back yard with many things you can touch and... More

I learned so much about how Israel came in to being from the excellent displays and interrelation of this fascinating museum. Even the carriages, wagons and diesels outside have well written detailed descriptions. Shame there is only one steam loco but Israel scrapped them all over 50 years ago. However I understand there are exciting plans.....! The manager is very... More

This is a great science museum, also offering play-areas revolving around scientific experiments. Great for young primary school level children but also enjoyable for adults. Nice science garden pay area outdoors as well. The architecture of the historic Technion building of 1913 is well worth the visit for adults regardless of the museum.
