Museums often suffer from the perennial problems of money,money and money. The Mane Katz Museum hosts a number of great pieces of art and one feels that while the museum does its best with what is available, the museum could really use some additional space to show this and additional works by the artist. Furthermore, the magnificent view from the location is squandered since there are no windows looking over the Bay of Haifa. Perhaps a quaint outdoor cafe would help generate revenue and bring and encourage people to visit the museum.

The mane Katz museum is a relatively small museum - a 4 room appartement... It hosts changing themes. We've just been to see the 'desire for Paris' exhibition - didit on Saturday, at noon, when you get a complimentary commentary / guided tour of the exhibition. The guide (Lilia) was very knowledgable, and we enjoyed the visit.
Of course you need to check what will be on display before you go, as it will change (3-4 times a year).

It should be a bit more invested, but more should go and see the collections as well. It looks like many local people (not to speak of tourist guides) are even not aware of the existence of that tiny museum in Haifa.

The museum houses a few pieces of this impressive and moving artist. Experiencing his work in such a warm setting only enhanced my desire to learn more about this artist who was a contemporary and friend of Picasso's. The strength of his roots always touches me.
Too bad his work is so hard to find.
