“Place which doesn' t need tourists”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 September 2012

May be it's very nice place, but first they should put the conditions of visiting somewhere in internet. Having come there I found that they ask a passport to enter the museum. This info even not written on the shield. It's a small handmade sticker. How could I know before, that l need id to visit museum? It's very stupid from managment of museum. Probably they are not interested in tourists. Ok, there are enough maritime museums all over the world.

“Pirates, Ancient Mariners and More...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2012

We particularly enjoyed the Pirate section of the museum as it was unusual to have this information presented visually, outside of film.This museum will enchant all family members with its dioramas and superb collection of historical ships and artifacts. Within easy walking distance of a Haifa train station, this is a must see to really understand Mediterranean history.

“Sea & History...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 September 2010

It was real nice place to visit and to see all of these old time tools which seamen used to navigate through seas with so much archeological finding of specific tools, equipments and other history related to Israel.
Added benefit is the walking distance to a few other historical / religious (Jewish and Christian) attractions in the area, after all any step you go in Israel has to do with history and religion.
