Surprisingly very good experience. We came without much expectation and got a very informative tour by Daniel. He explained a lot about the background of the items and local history and was generally very nice and welcoming. The museum has a lot to offer for anyone who is interested in the local history.

Loved it! It's a small museum takes about an hour to get to see everything. Inexpensive (only 18 ₪). The guide was very kind and informative. Great to visit before you go to Caesarea's National Park
