The best spot to look at the Northern Israel and the home to Hecht Museum Jul 30, 2011
Haifa University is one of the two universities located in Haifa. Its Eshkol Tower is the highest point of the city, giving the best views to (nearly) all directions.

Eshkol Tower is 30-floors high and has a look out point and a tiny Abba Khushi (the first Jewish major of Haifa) museum on the last floor.

To find the lifts is not an easy task, but it's worth it. You have to get out on the first bus stop of the university, cross the street and enter the main building from the entrance to your left (the ha-Poalim bank entrance). You'll have your bags checked by the security personnel, of course, but even though it's an educational building, the entrance is allowed for everybody. Pass the bank and go downstairs, you'll pass the local office supplements store and then you'll see straight ahead of you the Hecht museum, and to the left - several cafes. To the left of the cafes there's a small glass door - you have to enter it and go with the corridor to the lifts. They go up 29th floor and the last floor you'll have to climb on the stairs.

Alternatively you may go to a very nice Hecht archeological museum. It's a nice place with some interesting exhibits.
