The Israel National Museum of Science, Technology, and Space (also known as Madatech) (Hebrew: מדעטק - המוזיאון הלאומי למדע, טכנולוגיה וחללMadaTek - HaMuze'on HaLe'umi LeMada, Tekhnologya VeHalal, Arabic: متحف إسرائيل الوطني للعلوم والتكنولوجيا والفضاء‎) is a science and technology museum in the city of Haifa, Israel.

The museum, established in 1983, is housed in a historic building that was designed as the first home of the Technion — Israel Institute of Technology, until it relocated to its current campus. The architect was Alexander Baerwald, a German Jewish immigrant, who began working on the building in 1912.[3] On a visit to the Technion in 1923, Albert Einstein planted one of the palm trees in the courtyard, which can still be seen today.[4]
