Observatory has an upper level with binoculars and another level at bottom of the sea. Numerous exhibits so you can learn all about sea life.

This is the main attraction around. The aquariums are amazing. The sharks, the turtles, the rays. The observatory is very special too. Could use some renovation.

Hey, Basically it's opened till 4PM, also on Sukkot Holiday evening. In Israel, holiday eve (Wednesday) is treated like a Friday, as holiday begins, but the observatory opens till 4PM on Fridays as well... Enjoy!
