  • 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.

  • 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.
