Below The Submarine Navy Museum

Just above the Bat Galim Promenade, at the foot of Mount Carmel in the city of Haifa, is the Clandestine Immigration and Navy Museum. A large museum with many hands-on exhibits including two retired ships and a submarine on display and open for exploring, the museum is operated by the Israeli Navy and Ministry of Defence so don’t be surprised to find the front door locked – the guards will open it for you and ask for identification. Once inside, a short video presentation is shown giving a brief overview of the Israeli Navy’s history and then the large collection of both clandestine immigration and naval maps, photographs, articles and souvenirs can be browsed. Also, for those interested, a database of war medal and decoration recipients is available behind the guard’s booth.

The INS Gal is based on the German 206A type submarine with many changes by the Israelis making it an advanced submarine for its time. Commissioned in 1975, the INS Gal served in several of Israel’s battles and sorties and was finally decommissioned when the Dolphin class submarines were put into use.

Inside the submarine, much like the ship, there are recorded commands and noises typical of a seafaring vessel such as a submarine. Visitors are welcome to try out the periscope, pre-set to observing the road up above the museum, children love it!
