Free Admission To MadaTech!

Madatech, if you haven't heard of it, is a Science Museum, located in the heart of Haifa. It's a pretty good Science Museum (and we have seen MANY Science Museums in the past 18 years!), and all of my kids (aged 8-17 at the time we went) found things that interested them and kept them busy for our whole day there!

--- Retrieved from ---

Normally, it's pretty pricey to take a family to Madatech (base price is 340 shekels for a family of 4 according to the website, and each additional child is 50 shekels), so naturally, when we found out it was free on Wednesdays in February and March, we took a day to go. I wholeheartedly recommend you find a way to go too.
And now, Free Admission is back - Get into MadaTech in Haifa for FREE on Wednesdays in September, October, November, and December.

The following Wednesdays are excluded (admission is NOT free these days):

October 5 (Tzom Gedalya)

October 19 (Chol HaMoed Sukkot)

December 28 (Chanukah)

In addition, please note that the museum is closed on Erev Yom Kippur and Yom Kippur (October 11-12)

This promotion ends December 22, 2016

Opening hours on Wednesday are 10am - 4pm, so plan accordingly!
