Clandestine Immigration and Naval Museum is a wealth of exhibits including a sub-marine. The museum has done a very good job of presenting example of navel equipment used in the creation of Israel.

What a wonderful museum. Learning about the history of the Jews who came in surreptitiously was informative and entertaining. This is a great museum to visit and plan to spend a couple of hours.

I found this museum very interesting. Helps if you like old ships and history though. Lots of ships had a submarine to climb around in. Need your passport as ID to get in as a Naval facility
