“Small exhibition”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2014

The museum is more of a small exhibition of Japanese art dating from around 1850s to the modern time. Some of the most interesting paintings is the winter collection and the sword decorative handcrafts, which are delicate pieces of work. If you have seen Japanese art collections in larger museums, you may want to skip this one, unless you are an enthusiast of Japanese culture, then it is worth the time and 30 NIS admission fee.

“Not much to see”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

We were very disappointed with this little museum. First of all the staff were not very friendly when we were there. It is handicap accessible from the front or rear of the museum. There are very few exhibits and it took about 30 minutes to peruse them all.

“Small but Very Nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2014

I've been in Japan several times and yet the museum has exceeded my expectations. It hosted several interesting collections of Japanese paintings and artifacts and the visit was very enjoyable. It is very close to the upper entry to Baha'i Gardens so check it out when you are in the area.

“Very interesting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2014

This is a unique museum, with a very wide and interesting collection of Japanese art and educational explanations of what one sees as one walks around. Japan's art in a nutshell, and absolutely worth a visit while in Haifa.

“Small, gem of an art museum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 January 2014

Surprising to find this lovely, small gem of a museum near the hotel district on Hannassi Street. Provides lovely walking areas, retail stores and many restaurants near to the Hadar and Merkaz shopping areas. Well worth a stop by, especially if Oriental art is your thinkg.
