The museum sits on the hill overlooking old Jaffa and the Mediterranean Sea and contains a fine collection of antique furnishings, sculptures, displays of tribal art, drawings and paintings. Guided tours are available but we toured on our own without difficulty.

Only had 30minutes for this but could easily have spent 3 times that. So many varies pieces to see and so well laid out. It's like a journey through a highly abstract and sometimes disturbing world. Be sure to make it to the roof for...More
