I recommend people visit this lovely museum steps from the Highest point of the Bahia Gardens and the Louis Prominade in Haifa. The have a nice cafe and gift shop both very nice. They also offer space for activities and show movies all the time! The employees are very nice, welcoming and knowledgeable!

We only went in because it had free entrance due to sponsorship during Pesach. The tea services were interesting as well as the kimonos. The erotic art - we were warned before we entered by the staff was shall we say imaginative. If men really looked like that they wouldn't be able to walk around.... We only stayed about half...

A lovely museum for those you like Japanese culture. Spent a bit over 1 1/2 hours there. They do have guided tours; but you can do it yourself. Explanations in English and Hebrew.

Interesting display of erotic Japanese art. Small museum with a great gift shop. No English tours available. Located next door to the Dan Carmel Hotel. We stayed about 1/2 hour.

A nice location, a small but really good museum. Well, Japanese art doesn't need a lot of space - netsuke and etchings full of minuscule, precise and precious details. A lot of constant exhibits of "classical" Japanese art plus regular temporary exhibitions. Might look just a bit overpriced (~9 euro), but check for discounts and consider buying a combined ticket...

What a gem of a place tucked away in Mount Carmel! It was walking distance to my hotel and even though it is small, it packs a punch for all enthusiasts of Japanese art and culture. It has a bit of everything from Tikotin's collection. The highlight was the set of erotic prints displayed in a separate gallery. There is... More

A charming small museum, always changing exhibitions, beautiful building and a nice mood change from the rest of the city. The collection is fantastic and usually has something unique to offer for lovers of Asian and Japanese art. The museum is small so one does not get overwhelmed. A great place to spend an hour or two and take in... More
