Lonely Planet review for Dagon Grain Silo & Museum
There is no reason to visit the port area, unless you are catching a ferry to Cyprus or have a keen interest in seeing Israel's entrepôt for grain. The enormous Dagon Grain Silo & Museum is the distinctive fortresslike construction on Ha'atzmaut St that dominates the skyline of lower Haifa. There's a museum within the plant where you can take a free guided tour to learn something about the other oldest profession: the cultivation, handling, storing and distribution of grain.
Tours are at 10:30 Sunday to Friday, and the museum closes for the day once the tour is over.
