An anthropological collection of the Land of Israel that presents collections from the history of the land of all faiths and communities. It is especially interesting for those who do not know the liturgy of the other periods

This attraction was a little hard to find. It is just inside the main gate. You need to climb up the walls to get there. The exhibit is a collection of artifacts from the past 200 years illustrating life in this part of Galilee. For example, there are articles of clothing, a blacksmiths shop,a pharmacy and jewelry and art.

This is a great little museum showing different moments of life in Israel as it used to be at the beginning: an old pharmacy, a woodwork shop, how keys were made, a photographer etc, etc, etc. It is great fun to go back in time for the ones that new it and for the young who never saw it.

This museum was part of our combined ticket we bought when we visited the Crusader Fortress. It's a short walk as it's near the Old City. There's a large grassy area for kids to run around in and a great view. We were 20 people from age 7 to 75. Everyone enjoyed it, which was surprising. There are sections for... More

We visited this museum with our children. It was interesting to see how our parents lived. Especially interesting were the exhibitions about the rationing period and games from our parents childhood.

This is a great little museum near the sea that celebrates all the things we used in the past 100 years. I was lucky enough to meet one of its two original curators/collectors and had a great chat with them. Pure nostalgia and great fun for adults and kids.

A pleasant exhibition of donated personal collections which explain various aspects of daily life in the area over hundreds of years. The multi-cultural collections were very interesting, particularly the posters, toys, food containers and furniture from various periods.

This is one couple's collection of antiques, lovingly displayed here in the old walls of Akko. The collection ranges from unique to mundane: old chairs, dentist equipment, woordworking equipment, furniture, clothing, etc. Looks like grandpa's attic, but lovingly displayed.
