  • Nice exhibitions for children and adults, each on a separate building with walking distance between them. All explained in Hebrew and English. Recommended are the glass works exhibition and the coin collection. Planetarium shows for space travelers. Medium sized paid parking lot.
  • The gift shop was good if a little expensive. I had lunch at the Italian restaurant attached to the building. The food was good too. Waiters pleasant if a little slow. The coin collection was fascinating as was the ethnolographic exhibit. Postal museum also quite fascinating. Different parts of the museum as quite far apart so be prepared for a walk and a climb. Archelogical exhibits also interesting. Flour mill and an olive press. Worth a visit if you have 4 hours or so.
  • Wonderful permanent exhibits in the glass, coins, ceramics, glass and postal pavilions. Temporary (until end of July?) exhibition of works by Israeli paper artists is well worth visiting.
  • Not the best museum in terms of art and exhibitions. Planetarium is nice to try with kids. Another advantage os that you can also reach there by public transport.
  • This place is interesting and nice the museum is like a beautiful garden with building it has so many interesting monuments abut Israel if you in tel aviv come to this place for sure
