“Eclectic Art Collection in a Beautiful Setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

We spent about an hour inside Ilana Goor's Private Residence and Art Museum. It was filled with lots of wonderful works of art. Most of the art is her own, but there are other artists works displayed as well. You can wander around and take in the art and the beautiful views. I am not an "art enthusiast" but totally enjoyed this hidden gem in this lovely ancient seaside port of Jaffa near Tel Aviv. I especially enjoyed the views from the roof top and kitchen.

“Not impressed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

I like art as much as the next person but this didn't do it for me.It's one woman's art studio that she made into a "museum". Good marketing but not really a museum.

“A refreshing change, and a chance to ponder some great art in a great location.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

This really is a hidden gem. The old port of Jaffa in Tel Aviv exudes history and culture, so Ilana Goor's museum fits in perfectly. Nobody rushes you, and you can take time to absorb and admire such a wide collection of art and sculpture. The rooftop has been utilised to the maximum potential, and on a hot day, offers the benefit of a sea breeze. Nearby, Jaffa itself offers the visitor a varied assortment of good local food restaurants, with the emphasis on fish dishes, ideal for a lunch stop after your visit to Ilana Goor's Museum. Worth including on a day walkabout tour if you are in Tel Aviv. Enjoy!

“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.
