#2 of 17 in Museums in Haifa
The Reuben and Edith Hecht Museum is a museum located on the grounds of the University of Haifa, Israel.
The Hecht Museum was established in 1984 by Reuben Hecht, director of Dagon Silos and a founding member of the University of Haifa Board of Governors. For sixty years, Hecht collected archaeological artefacts representing the material culture of the Land of Israel in ancient times. He was particularly interested in finds from the Canaanite period to the end of the Byzantine period. Hecht believed that archeology was an important expression of Zionism and these ancient artifacts were proof of the link between the Jewish people and Eretz Israel.

  • Excellently prepared interesting archaeological collection and small, very beautiful impressionist art collection. After a free visit to the museum, you can take the elevator up in the high-rise and enjoy a wonderful view of Haifa and the surrounding area from the 30th floor. The museum entrance is a little hidden in the basement of the cafeteria. Don't let us wander through the university. To the elevators we pass the cafeteria and right into a corridor.

  • The museum is part of the University of Haifa - rather far from the city but worth the trouble! The exhibition mainly consists of the archaeological finds of the area but it is very modern, up-to-date...  more »
