Israel's National Museum of Science, Technology and Space, also known as Madatech, was established in 1983 and is housed in beautiful, historic landmark buildings in the center of a seven-acre green campus in mid-town Haifa. This complex was originally home to Israel's Institute of Technology (the Technion) which was the first academic institution in Israel.
Madatech features over twenty exhibits, over six-hundred hands-on exhibits and seven, multi-sense 3D movies. The Museum promises an unforgettable experience for visitors as they look, feel and explore their way through.
There are seven educational centers on the campus in which three-hundred educational sessions are delivered each year. Three mobile labs travel throughout Israel, bringing the fun to those who can't reach the Museum.
The Madatech is a place of exploration, discovery and learning through play and fun and makes for an enjoyable and educational family day out.

As a mother of kids between the ages of fifteen and four I can attest to the fact that this museum is a fantastic day out for the entire family.exhibitions change every few months and can take several hours to enjoy.
Those with school-age kids take not- you MUST visit this museum- the kids had such a good time here they didn't want to leave!
We took the kids here for the day and had a great time- hands-on exhibitions that feed their curiosity and keep them interested for a good few hours!
