“Hidden treasure.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

A fascinating artist, but the best part is the amazing house and views. Artist renovated this ancient house, and it is magnificent. Museum houses other artists, as well as the owner's. spectacular vistas from the roof gardens.

“Fun Artistic Wonderland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

The museum is a delightful blend of local architecture, the personal collection of the artist Ilana Goor along with her own artwork in what is both her home and a museum open to the public. A shop selling her works (which include everything from jewellery to furnishings) is downstairs and open for free if one just wants a taste of the place without the entry to the museum though it's worth the visit just for the atmosphere alone. Goor's art is reminiscent of Giacometti but there's more to it than that...

“Interesting”

Very interesting collection. Spectacular view from the second floor. Art is modern but worth seeing. Great area and plenty to see while walking to museum.
