The Museum of Illegal Immigration is located at the southern entrance to Haifa. The museum building was built next to one of the immigration ships. Near the museum, you can observe the remains of the famous submarine Dakar, which was recently considered missing without a trace.
The museum displays exhibits related to the Israeli Naval Special Forces, the steering wheel of the Karin A.;, which became famous in 2002. This vessel was hijacked in neutral waters by Israeli special forces. The ship was supposed to deliver a huge consignment of weapons to the port of Gaza.
In the courtyard of the museum there are exhibits of large-caliber machine guns and cannons used on ships.
It is also worth visiting on board the ship, next to which the museum is located – here you can get acquainted with the history of the development and formation of the Israeli naval forces through video - sound performances, as well as hear about illegal emigration.
