Caesarea Museum of Antiquities

Updated 05/20/2013

Fodor's Review

In Kibbutz Sdot Yam just outside Caesarea, this excellent museum houses many of the artifacts found by kibbutz members as they plowed their fields in the 1940s. The small museum has arguably the best collection of late-Roman sculpture and figurines in Israel; impressive holdings of rare Roman and Byzantine gemstones; and a large variety of coins minted in Caesarea over the ages, as well as oil lamps, urns excavated from the sea floor, and fragments of jewelry.
