A friend told us this was a favorite museum for her to visit when in Tel Aviv. While I love art, large museums can be overwhelming . Also, as a tourist to Israel, I have a limit to how many museums I can make it through without being overwhelmed. This museum was a perfect respite. It is in a private... More

the exhibit now shows photos taken at scenes at approximate time of paintings, which shed an interesting light on the paintings in terms of texture, proportions etc. There are some iconinc paintings of Rubin.

The museum presented a good history of the artist and his time in Palestine. We enjoyed seeing the study where he worked. It was kept as if he were still there

I went here only because it was marked on my map and I happened to be nearby. I was actually more interested in the architecture, since I'm not crazy about watercolors, but in the end I enjoyed the contents of the house as much as the house itself. It is located in the White City or Bauhaus area and is... More

But, I was disappointed as there were not guides to explain, tell or indicate anything to do with Rubin's life and art. It was only the paintings.... More
