We arrived at noon, and impressed by the underground city, its huge and well reserved. Great visual projections on the walls, also have digital guide you can take with you on the entrence. The kids also add great time and bought Knight swords. Recommended.

Well laid out and both visually and orally interesting, providing a solid overview of Akko middle period history. Like other Israel experiences, it offers a brief but profound sense of the ebb and flows of civilizations.

We start with the history of the British and the Crusades. Huge fortress. And that was fascinating enough. But then it turns into the history of 1948 and the jail part where the British locked up Irgun members because they were preparing for a war...More

It is amazing how sound effects and the display of cartoon like videos make you feel like you are thrown back in time. The effects really makes it special for both adults and children!

We went through this site as part of an organized tour group. The history was quite fascinating, and it was an awe-inspiring experience to pass through such a large crusader-era edifice that was still in such good condition. I wished we could have spent more...More

One ticket is all you need. Follow arrows on the floor. You should allow two hours, but it could also get to be twice the time if you really get into it.

Strongly suggest a carrier if you plan on touring the Templar tunnels and walking the fortress walls. There are numerous steps and uneven walkways, some from cobblestone so pushing a stroller would be problematic. Enjoy
