Overall Guide : Set amidst lush manicured gardens is the holy site Bahai World Centre which comprises of the shrine of the Bab and several administrative buildings. The Hecht Museum is an exhibition centre of archaeology and art work. Paintings and sculptures by... more renowned artists like Van Gogh and Picasso are featured here. Another interesting place for a day trip is the Haifa Zoo and Botanical Garden where visitors can enjoy the scenic surroundings comprising of blooming flowers and exotic plant species. Also housed here are some native animal species. The Tikotin Museum of Japanese Art, found by a known collector of Japanese art, Felix Tikotin, is a storehouse displaying ancient as well as contemporary Japanese art. The largest park in Israel, the Carmel Park, features evergreen Mediterranean plants like the pine, oak and cypress. It receives the most rainfall in Haifa. The park is a famous camping destination and is ideal for leisurely strolls.
