In addition, Haifa University boasts the first museum to be located on a university campus- the Hecht Archaeological Museum that displays thematic exhibits, ancient industry and craft exhibits, and a 2400-year-old sea vessel that was discovered of the coast of Kibbutz Maagan Michael. The Art Wing contains French Impressionist paintings, works from the Jewish School of Paris and pieces of art by victims of the Holocaust.
