    We spent nearly 3 hours at this museum which features a great collection of impressionist and post impressionist painters.
    We were quite amazed by the number and quality of the paintings : Monet, Renoir, Pissaro, Van Gogh, Gauguin, Degas, Picasso...
    The permanent collection of Israeli moden art is also quite interesting, along with the architecture of the museum and the temporary exhibitions.
    There is also a cafe, with a great garden where you can have your snack , salad or pizza basking in the sun in spring or summer.

    Maybe the best food court I've ever been too. Great collection of restaurants, bars and specialty food stores with a festive vibe.

    Great way to view and learn about the fighters. As an English speaker, I had to use the handset which was fine, but I felt like we missed out on some of what was being said. Felt like I was viewing a secret museum underground - very creative. We moved from room to room learning about a group of fighters and hearing their story. A soldier told us a little bit about the museum before we started - later I heard another speak to her group and wish I had heard her first because she gave more information.

    This was fascinating to me as an American. It covered the history of Israel through the life of Rabin.

    We had a tremendous visit. This newly redesigned museum is engaging, informative and entertaining. We had budgeted 2 hours for a thorough visit, and after 3 hours needed to tear ourselves away.
    Be sure to bring earphones for your cellphone since the free audio guide is accessed via phone.

    We visited the Ilana Goor Museum in May 2022. The museum is in a building that also contains the artist’s residence. Ms. Goor is a prolific artist and the museum is packed with her fabulous work. The museum shop has dozens of religious and non-religious items for sale. Don’t miss it!

    Even though this is not the real location, it is still a great place to learn about the events leading up to the Declaration of the State of Israel. The movie is very informative, all the pictures on the walls are really educational and the bonus is the rest of the historical information in the building. The models of Tel Aviv are so interesting.

    This is the personal house of Ben-Gurion in Tel Aviv and it is now a museum. It is interesting to see inside as it seems he lived inside a library and all of his books are still there. Price is free, staff are friendly and helpful. There is not much information about Ben-Gurion or the house.

    There are a lot of places that are closed on Saturday in Tel Aviv. Eretz Israel Museum was open and we're glad we visited. Interesting exhibits of artifacts, coins, stamps, glass and other antiquities. Highly recommended.

    This is a Center Of Peace and it is a must see for everyone. It shows many interactive screens where you can find innovators of technology medicine and interactive 3D technology. The innovators of life saving medicines are on large screens where they actually talk to you. There is also a large theater where you can see many educational lectures and videos
    It is a thoroughly enjoyable and impressive time spent there not to mention a wonderful knowledgeable guide
    This is a place not to be missed when in Tel Aviv

    We took the Classic Bauhaus tour. The movie was very informative and our guide was also very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the subject. On the down side was that the guide's microphone made a lot of loud static/clicking noises as we walked and the headsets only worked so-so so we missed some of the stories. The other disappointment was that we were not given a map, as promised by the website. We asked for it at the end of the tour and were told in a very abrupt manner that there were no maps except one that we had to buy for 25 shekels and that there was not even a map that we could take a picture of; that encounter left a bad impression of what was otherwise a good tour. It's also a bit pricey, but then again this is Tel Aviv. I would still recommend it to architecture fans.

    I am interested in the history of Israel and particularly the early years of the state, but even if that's "not your thing" this is a fascinating place for a taster of how Israel came into being. The Haganah Museum tells of the Jewish residents and how they developed a system of defence - the organisation which evolved into the Haganah (Hebrew for "defence") and which subsequently became the Israel Defence Force.

    The exhibition includes a display of recruitment posters on the ground floor and then a series of tableaus, photos and displays on the other floors. I found the models especially appealing and a lot of work has gone into creating them. At one point, you actually walk under a model of a watch-tower used in the "Tower and Stockade" settlements. There are also items of memorabilia from the time and for British visitors one of the most intriguing was the display on Orde Wingate.

    The captions are in Hebrew and English. In the foyer, are books for sale though most of these are in Hebrew. The day I went there was a lovely lady on the reception desk who let me have a lot of information and leaflets on the museum, as well as a book to explain the history to children.

    I would recommend at least 1-2 hours here and possibly more if you have a good knowledge of Hebrew.
