The dichotomy of having ancient and Biblical artifacts in one area and modern art in another fascinates me, but the Hecht manages to do both well. There are so many fascinating ancient things on display--ossuaries, mosaics, glassware, instruments of war. I spent hours here.

It is very sad that I have been a student at the University for over a year, and this is my first time in the Museum, but I would warmly recommend it for anyone who is in Haifa. It is well laid out and plenty to see.

It also had a good display of paintings. It was also free and while you were there you could also visit the tower on the 30th floor... More

My son is attending a summer program at the university of Haifa and I walked by this museum a few times making a note to visit at some point. I thought it was primarily ancient artifacts but was pleasantly surprised, shocked actually, when I went up to the French impressionist gallery to see utrillos, manets and other world class art...
