Cute museum, not too big with enough stuff to keep kids occupied. A little gem. My kids like using little phones that go with the visit. Had some nice interactive displays and is genuinely interesting. Nice art exhibition in the basement.

If in Ashdod, this museum is DEFINITELY worth a visit: Excellently curated, it manages to fit a lot of intesting facts and artifacts into a small display area. Enjoy! Cynthia and Ilan Rubin, Jerusalem

Small museum of artifacts. The narrator is very interesting as is her stories. One interactive thing is Samson pulling down the pillars. Nice interlude for an hour or two in the afternoon.
