Very interesting museum that gives you the history of the whole area. The real treat is going the elevator upstairs to the top floor where you see a magnificent paranorama view of Haifa.Easy to get there by bus.

We were impressed with the quality of the exhibits and the size of the collection for a small to midsize museum. The descriptions were very informative and completely translated into English. Parking is hard to find near the musem.

The museum is indeed open during the summer. I suggest you look online for the hours but my guess is 830 to 4 pm Sun-Thursday and different hours Fri and Saturday.. Enjoy.
