  • seen only part of the museum as the remodel is to be done mid next year, but the existing exhibits are fantastic, the section on jewish humor very good as well as a final recognition of the ethiopian ...  more »
  • Interesting museum! In the building before that, there was a very humorous one. There are also exhibitions of tai people, churches and diasporas around the world. It's worth spending a little time or more here. For the new building, it will be open in April 2020 or May 2020. At that point, the question will be asked again. As a result of ethnographic research, the museum is located in the university department. But getting into a university is powerful.

  • We had a great time there, and we've only seen one and a half of the exhibitions. I know I'll come back for more, and more than once. Our kids (ages 3-8) also enjoyed themselves.
  • Really cute, clean family friendly museum. Handicap and stroller accessible. Multilingual. Food and bathrooms available. Close proximity to public transportation. Paid parking walking distance.
  • The museum is going through renovation and will be completed around December of this year. What I saw so far was amazing! Really worth the tour!
  • Now under constructions, but usually a very nice museum for groups for educational purposes
  • Most of Museums in Tel Aviv close on Sunday, but this Museum open. I had fun to looking under different concepts of Exhibitions. I like the collection of Synagogues in the different regions and explanation. Jewish people in Media room was fun to looking. This Museum is located inside Tel Aviv University Campus, the atomosphere was different than others.
