About The Museum
The Treasures in the Walls Museum is an ethnographic museum dedicated to the city’s craftsmanship. Located inside the northeastern walls of old Akko, the museum depicts life in the Galilee during the 19th and early 20th centuries. A huge assortment of crafts, art, and even children’s books are on display.
The hundreds of items displayed in the museum showcase the traditional craftsmanship of those who worked in the markets. Spectacular furniture from the city’s then-elite is also on display. The museum is a tribute to the fabric of life in this city that was a unique meeting place of art, culture, and religion. The exhibitions illustrate how designs and techniques evolved in line with the fashion and spirit of the times.
Beyond the museum’s permanent exhibitions are rotating exhibitions that change once every three months. There is a menorah exhibition that opens annually ahead of Hanukkah (December) featuring dozens of menorahs dating from the 1930s onward. Another pearl in the museum is the round inner courtyard where canons once stood. The garden now serves as a reception area for cultural and private events.
The magical blend of the original stone halls and the hundreds of objects on display is a unique and special experience for adults and children alike.
Akko itself has plenty of remnants of the times you will learn about in this museum. Explore Akko on your own or on a tour to learn even more beyond the museum walls. The museum is located at 2 Weizmann Street, Eastern Wall, Old Akko.
