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!
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 that summer vacation is over, Free Admission is back - Get into MadaTech in Haifa for FREE on most Wednesdays in 2017!
The following Wednesdays are excluded (admission is NOT free these days):
Sept 20 - erev Rosh Hashana
Oct. 4 and 11 (Sukkot vacation)
December 13 and 20 (Chanukah vacation)
In addition, please note that there may be other changes or days the museum is closed. Please check the website or call the museum (04-861-4444) before you go!
This promotion ends December 31, 2017.
Opening hours on Wednesday are 10am - 3pm, so plan accordingly!
