Haifa museums to visit this Independence Day
The museum showcases the work of one of the last century’s foremost printmakers, Hermann Struck, while trying to recreate the spirit and atmosphere of where he worked and lived. The space itself fuses European and Oriental elements like painted floors and arched windows and features furniture painted by the artist.
Nestled between tall bamboo, this museum is dedicated to art from the Land of the Rising Sun, showcasing a broad cross-section of both traditional and modern Japanese prints and paintings. Due to the delicate nature of Japanese craftsmanship, which is sensitive to light and weather, exhibits change frequently.
Dedicated to shipping on the Mediterranean, the Red Sea and the banks of the Nile, the museum’s permanent exhibition showcases everything from maritime art to mythology of the sea. Sea lovers will fawn over the impressive collection of model ships, underwater archaeological discoveries like coins, seals, and clay vessels.
Haifa Museum is located in an historic 1930s building at the axis connecting Haifa’s Muslim, Christian, and Jewish neighborhoods. Three floors display works by artists from Israel and the world, including Daumier, Chagall, Chana Orloff, and Andre Masson as well as temporary exhibitions and video installations.
Located in the home of Mané Katz, one of the most important artists of the Paris School in the early 20th century, the museum offers a grand view of the Haifa Bay. Its collection consists of hundreds of Katz’s oil paintings, gouache, pastels, sketches, and sculptures.
The Haifa City Museum, located among the impressive Templar buildings of the city's German Quarter, primarily addresses history, urban life, identity, and multinationality. Exhibitions deal with issues of relevance to Haifa's diverse population, tracing its development from the Ottoman period until today.
