The Mane Katz Museum
This public, non-profit organization was set up by Haifa’s town council. The non-profit organization took it upon itself to catalog, maintain, preserve and administer the legacy of Mane Katz, as well as to look after the copyright of all his paintings and works of art. In addition, they sought to enlarge the exhibition area, as well as to enrich the museum’s collections.
The exhibition is changed about every three months and includes exhibits taken from the museum’s own collection as well as from other places. Mane Katz work includes oil paintings, gouaches, sketches, water colours, sculptures done in plaster of Paris and bronze casts. Included among his collections are antique furniture, Oriental carpets, statuettes – including clay toys stemming from Eastern Europe – bronze statuettes from the Far east and so on and so forth….

The Clandestine Immigration and Naval Museum
This museum is dedicated to telling the story of the struggle for the right to immigrate to Israel during the years 1934 – 1948, when the British Mandate was in operation. This is a chapter of our history which deals with Jewish clandestine immigration and the right to settle here. It is one of the corner stones of the establishment of the State of Israel. This story is displayed in our museum by means of historic documents, newspaper cuttings, photos, original models, audio visual materials and films. In order to bring home the impact of this landmark in Israeli history, we use a computerized map of the various routes taken by the clandestine vessels, so that we can follow in their footsteps and thus view the whole story of these secret boats in its entirety. For example, we use the clandestine immigrant ship, the Af al pi chen, (which can be translated as ‘In spite of all that’), both as an exhibit in its own right, and also as the venue for a son and lumiere show, which we call ‘From beach to beach’.
