What a gem of a place tucked away in Mount Carmel! It was walking distance to my hotel and even though it is small, it packs a punch for all enthusiasts of Japanese art and culture. It has a bit of everything from Tikotin's collection. The highlight was the set of erotic prints displayed in a separate gallery. There is... More

A charming small museum, always changing exhibitions, beautiful building and a nice mood change from the rest of the city. The collection is fantastic and usually has something unique to offer for lovers of Asian and Japanese art. The museum is small so one does not get overwhelmed. A great place to spend an hour or two and take in... More

We visited on a rainy day as there was not much else to do in such weather. The entrance fee is 35 shekhels which we thought was a bit too much for an exhibition in only two smaller rooms. The exhibition itself only consisted of photographs that you can also see on internet. Big dissapointment.

Tikotin is a great little museum. Great for a short visit. Easy to get around. Very jnnteresnting displays with explanations in English and Hebrew. Current movies are shown daily in their lecture hall. If you arrive early, you can spend a few minutes viewing exhibits in the museum at no extra charge.

We gust came back, it is not a museum. They gust show you a room with Japanese pictures taken from their holiday And a room with som kimonos, that's all, no culture no art no nothing. Do not go there. It is a waste of time and money

Totally random, but nice little museum, and a nice thing to do up in Merkaz Carmel. They have a lovely collection, fun rotating exhibits, and a pretty sweet gift shop!

This museum currently has an exhibit about Japanese pop culture. Large posed photos and selfies of youth. Not interesting. there are also some kimonos and some typical Japanese vessels, etc. in glass cases. I bought the combo ticket from the Haifa museum of art which included this museum for free. We spent less than 10 minutes in the museum. I... More

We arrived with kids that had little interest in entering but who ended up enjoying the Cosplay exhibit very much, as we did. The air conditioning was heavenly considering the heat outside. The museum is clean and modern, well lighted, and the store is excellent with many fun and clever things for sale.

Tikotin is a museum of Japanese art, on the Center of Carmel Mountain in Haifa. Usualy we visit this place to see a movie, but this place is hosting Japanese art exhibitions, from time to time lectures, etc.
