“Went here a few years ago – it’s free and while older kids can get different things out of it even my 2 year old enjoyed herself. It is free, you need to prebook, it includes a film, and a bus ride around the power station and all the way up the pier over the sea to watch the coal being brought by ship and sent down to the station to be turned into electricity. V interesting and they give kids stickers and it’s quite cute. Afterwards we went nearby to beit hankin restaurant in givat olga right on the beach which is a lovely (kosher milky) place (up lots of stairs) and the beach there is empty, clean and has some rock pools for exploring. A great day out!”
Since the recommendation above, it seems they now have an age restriction for this tour – children must be 8+. However there is a tour at the Cheftziba plant which has no age limit. The main visitors centres are Orot Rabin in Hadera and Rotnberg in Ashkelon.
The tour lasts about an hour and a half, including a film and tour on a bus to see the plant.
Only open during holidays and they have specifc open days. Call to book a place.
