Clandestine Immigration and Naval Museum, Haifa District, Israel

This museum is dedicated to telling the story of the struggle for the right to immigrate to Israel during the years 1934 – 1948 when the British Mandate was in operation.

This is a chapter of our history which deals with Jewish clandestine immigration and the right to settle here.

It is one of the cornerstones of the establishment of the State of Israel. This story is displayed in our museum and includes: historic documents, newspaper clippings, photos, original models, audio visual materials and films.

In order to bring home the impact of this landmark in Israeli history, we use a computerized map of the various routes taken by the clandestine vessels, so that we can follow in their footsteps and thus view the story of these secret boats in its entirety.

For example, we have on display the clandestine immigrant ship, the “Af al Pi Chen,” (which can be translated as ‘In spite of all that’), both as an exhibit and also as the venue for a sound and light show (son et lumière) which we call ‘from beach to beach.’

A special wing of the museum is devoted to the history of the Israeli navy, whose roots go back to this very clandestine immigration operation at the time of the British Mandate.

Also included in this naval display are photos, certificates, sketches of skirmishes with the British authorities, models of the ships, original exhibits, and finally, examples of arms and weaponry which were used in naval warfare during that time.
