  • Funky, artsy, quirky real home in the heart of Jaffa Old Town. I loved it. Ms. Goor's art isn't quite my taste, but that doesn't matter. The pleasure of seeing the inside her home, the views from her many verandas, the awesome huge chandeliers....what a lucky lady to live here!
  • My favorite museum in Israel, is very interesed and the best part is the roof top and the view that offer of Tel Aviv Jaffo, really worth it
  • Very special place with great collection of art pieces from Ilana Gur and other artists. Location is great as well, one of the best views in Jaffa.
  • I give it 2 stars because it is really not my taste and a bit disappointed to pay the price of admission. However, the museum itself is kept very well and is a fun kind of maze to stroll in. One thing that is worth seeing in this museum is the view from the sculpture garden on the roof balcony. In general the artistic style there is too grotesque and weird for me, but thats just my taste. If you're into modern art though it will probably suit you.
  • Interesting museum located in a beautiful historical building in the heart of Jaffa.

Where to stay in Tel Aviv
