The Israel National Museum of Science, Technology, and Space (also known as Madatech) (Hebrew: מדעטק - המוזיאון הלאומי למדע, טכנולוגיה וחלל MadaTek - 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. 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.
The museum has approximately 200,000 visitors annually.
