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.

A gem in the wall. Excellent museum, In a relatively small area a huge collection how Israeli workers, craftsmen. houses, shops looked like dozens of years ago. Lovely for older generation as nostalgy (wherever you come from) and lovely for kids to explore the past. I would have given the creators a real prize.

We discovered this little museum by chance and enjoyed the visit ! It is nicely organized most collections are donated and as such enrich the visitor with something you would not see otherwise !

The entry price is included in the price of the combined ticket for the crusader castle. It is a small, slightly scruffy, look at what households and crafts liked like in the period up to the 1950 / 60s. It is not just bric a brac, it is a little time capsule.

You may, or not, be impressed by what you see. the real story is about what you don't see. The artifacts on display are from, mainly two private collections, whose owners' initiative is credited with the existence of the museum. It is located in underground chambers that for centuries were filled with rubble and trash, reaching the ceilings and were... More

Quite useless. It doeasn't worth it at all... If you have to spend the day give a look at it, otherwise can avoid it.
