  • This is a wonderful place to visit and get an idea of ancient arts and crafts in Israel. The current biennale of contemporary crafts is recommended. Enjoy.  more »
  • Good museum, a lot to see. Too much for one day. The one thing missing is more extensive information on what one is seeing in most of the exhibits.
  • Hosts some of the more important exhibitions of our times, including the always fantastic yearly exhibition of local testimony. Also, the gift shop is a great place to visit if you love design and art.
  • Local witness is a shocking experience for children and on the weekend many families visit. There should be a different section with proper warning. Apart from that photos are hung high and it's impossible to read the description. Planetarium is great though.
  • A very interesting museum with refreshing and enlightening exhibitions, would recommend to anyone that can. The national-international photography exhibition is highly recommended.
  • A typical museum experience. Plenty to see but not an interactive experience. There was a great exhibition of photography by David Rubinger which was worth the visit alone. I guess it's worth watching out for other special exhibitions. Large museum shop was ok but coffee shop was next door and underwhelming. Plenty of on site parking which you have to pay for... The museum is a good place to go if you want to learn more about the history of Israel, you don't have bored kids with you and it's raining...
