Haifa University was established in 1963 and is situated in the Carmel region, surrounded by the Carmel National Park. The University prides itself on being the most pluralistic institution of higher education in Israel with people from all walks of life, religions, cultures, beliefs and backgrounds learning together in an atmosphere of coexistence, tolerance and respect.
One can enjoy a spectacular view of Haifa and the bay from the lookout point on the Eshkol Tower which is the University's main building. 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.
A tour of the University includes the Visitors Center and the Archaeological Museum and is completely free.
