At the northern end of Old Acre, the Underground Prisoners Museum is housed in an Ottoman-era fortress, used as a central prison during British rule for hundreds of members of the Haganah, Etzel and Lehi underground Jewish movements. Visitors can tour prison cells, the Jabotinsky section, the site of the 1947 break-in, the solitary confinement cells, execution chamber and commemoration rooms. Tours must be arranged ahead of time.
