You will find the Eretz Israel Museum next to Tel Aviv University and near the Palmach Museum. There are exhibits about ceramics (ancient to modern,) Glass (also ancient to modern,) coins and many more. Old wine press, old olive press, a planetarium and so on. The gift shop is outstanding and has a wonderful selection of artists' work: ceramics, Judaica,... More

The museum houses an amazing exhibit of fragments of eight unique manuscripts written in Hebrew and Aramaic which were discovered along the steep cliffs and desert caverns, which are located near the Dead Sea and Khirbet Qumran. The fact that they survived for twenty centuries, that they were found accidentally by Bedouin shepherds, that they are the largest and oldest... More

We walked here but it is out of the way and not easy to get to. We particularly liked the ceramic exhibit and exhibit of old movie posters. Great museum shop!

The last time I visited the museum which was in June, I explored the glass pavilion and the cinema poster exhibition among others. A usual thought provoking experience is the annual journalism photo exhibition. The current exhibitions are constantly changing so it would not be unusual for me to revisit the museum. The museum truly bespeaks the voice of the... More

The museum occupies a huge space but the exhibitions were small. We expected for instance a wider selection of stamps, or artifacts, or some more movies (videos). Somehow it was a museum based on small scale exhibits.

This is a museum without rhyme or reason. It claims to be a museum of the land of Israel, but I'd guess that over three-quarters of the artifacts have nothing to do with Israel. Glass blown in Bohemia? Lovely, I suppose. Of possible importance as an artifact of Jewish history (if, perhaps, some explanation was provided as to how or... More

Even after being in Tel Aviv many times over the years, we had never been to the Eretz Israel Museum. What a gem this place is....you see the history of the State through coins, ceramics, archeology, to name a few venues - all in separate buildings. Plus, the gift shop is wonderful.

What a great way to spend a rainy morning. Each building is devoted to the land and its people. From the coins to the stamps, to the fire truck, to the exhibition on Israeli jewellery was without a doubt a wonderful journey. Enjoy your time at this important museum.
