Cold outside? Visit the art museum in Tel Aviv!

Tel Aviv Museum of Art is a municipal museum, one of Israel’s leading artistic and cultural institutions and as amazing place to visit for the winter season.

The museum comprises various departments: The Department of Israeli Art, which holds a comprehensive collection of local art from the beginning of the 20th century to the present; the Department of Modern and Contemporary Art, which encompasses international works from the mid-19th century to the present; the Department of Prints and Drawings; the Department of Photography; the Department of Architecture and Design; and the Old Masters Department, with art from the 16th to the 19th century.
In addition to its extensive program of permanent and changing exhibitions, the museum offers a vibrant selection of programs and activities for adults, youth and children: concerts, classes, lectures, guided tours, workshops, and more.
The museum is an iconic spot in Tel Aviv – it was envisioned and founded in 1932 by the first Mayor of Tel Aviv, Meir Dizengoff, in his private home on Rothschild Boulevard. Since then, it has changed locations and developed significantly. The museum’s collection, which originally comprised only a few dozen items, has grown and it holds an impressive collection.
