Outside of the inner city you will find strong walls protecting the old town. The wall was built after the withdrawal of Napoleon. Inside of the wall there are halls and tunnels used by soldier for cannons. Nowadays in one of the halls the Ethnographic Museum 'Treasure in the Wall' has found its place. It features life and culture in the past of Acre. The exhibition reaches from very rich decorated dishes imported from Persia to collections of tools used by different professions. The museum is slightly off the common paths inside the old town, but very worth to be visited! If you have a combined ticket for Acres sites, then you probably will have this museum included.
Decorated metal dish. As far as I remember it was made in Persia.
I really liked this show case. Christian, jewish and islamic religion combined side by side.
The leather workshop.
A hat makers workplace. See the different kinds of hats, like the red Fez.
A shoe cleaners workplace
