Otzrot BaHoma Museum

Ethnographic Museum “Treasures in the Walls”

This unique museum, Otzrot BaHoma or Treasures in the Walls, is located within the north-eastern walls of old Acre, originally built by the Ottoman ruler of the area, Ahmed Al-Jazzar Pasha. This massive wall was built after Napoleon´s attempt to conquer the city in 1779. The museum is housed in the commander´s tower “Burge-el-commandar”.  The Tower was divided into arched halls which were used to hold the Ottomans garrison and now hold a beautiful and rare collection which gives an insight into the life in the Galilee during the 19th and the beginning of the 20th centuries. Among the exhibits are a market street, an apothecary, a blacksmith’s and a shoemaker’s workshops.
