This is a complex of a number of museums. I cannot speak to most of them, because I have not visited them. Every time I go there, I go to the Glass Museum, which is one of the best in the world. If you like glass, Highly Recommended.

So much to see, so little time. I really enjoyed this museum. Somehow Israeli museums seem able to keep their content fresh and interesting. Very dynamic - keeps you coming back!

2000 year in less then 1 day. It is very well organized, with many languages to select from, so you can deepdive into each piece of history you choose.

I love museums, especially history and culture based, so I was expecting to love this museum. However, it is in need of serious repair and upkeep (most of the listening devices do not work, signs are damaged, dilapidated displays, etc.). Also they advertised the Amy Winehouse exhibit but that was closed! It seemed a little over priced to boot. However,... More

The museum is nice, the exhibits can be really interesting. My favorite part is that it is placed inside the TLV University, which is amazingly nice to wonder at.

This is not just a museum, this is a living breathing testament to a peoples hard work to bring about a country which had nothing until 1948. the exhibits show the progress of the people over many years including some of the hardships they had to endure under harsh living conditions, very little money but the pioneer spirit won through....

THis museum is very hard to find and closes early, but it is an awesome place to go, and I really thought it was interesting as it showed the history of the Jewish people where they moved around, why and when. and eventually the Jewish immigration to Israel and where it came from. Definitely a top museum in Israel
