The bathhouse is well preserved, but the audio guide and video presentation were distracting and random. Not really worth a special visit--we went with the combined entry ticket.

It's a small Hamam but it has a very interesting audio-visual presentation of its history. Recommended.

It was really nice to see the museum, but you walk through it in 10-15 min (at least I did), but if you happen to walk by, it is worth a visit.

There is a short video explaining the history of this Hamam and its relationship to Napoleon. Surprising that the museum glorifies the senseless violence of Ahmed al Jazzar. Does not present an inviting or sympathetic image of Moslem culture. The Hamam itself is interesting and...More

It is no longer operating, more a museum then the real thing. Still worth a visit since it is interesting and well maintained and it is showing how it was extremely well and vivid.

A nicely renovated place that gives an insight into Turkish bath culture. There is a short movie that tells you not only introduces the different parts of the bath but also gives a quick overview about the last 300 years of history of Akko. Funny...More

It's interesting to see the Hamam and hear about it but the films inside are too long and in my opinion are not good, too much talking. 2 5min films will do the trick instead of the current 15 and 10 min films.
