“Worth a visit...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

We really enjoy this museum and residence. First of all, I would love to live here! And what does Ilana cook with those pots??? But the art and decor are just wonderful to see. This was our 2nd time at the museum and we enjoyed just as much as our first time.

“It's a must”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

Located in a beautiful 18th century house, in old Jaffa, with breathtaking view of Jaffa Sea from the roof terrace. The house was a Jewish Inn in the 18th century, and the first one outside the city walls. In the 19th century it was a home of a cosmetics products family, and you can see the old oven and chimney during your visit. Now it is actually the artist's home, and I saw her entering the house with her 2 big dogs. Inside the museum they are approx. 500 works, most of them by Ilana Goor, and her collection. You will see International artists' sculpture by Henry Moore, Ron Arad,and the Japanese artist Kushida. I enjoy the Israelis artists' like: Danziger, Tumarkin, Kadishman and Uri Lifshitz. There is also a nice collection of African art, Chinese pottery, and Russian Samovars.
On the entrance floor and around the house there are Photographs of Ilana Goor with celebrities from around the world and from Israel.
The best part: the museum is open 7 days a week!!!

“Amazing creativity!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

I am NOT a museum person and rarely go to them, but I loved this one. The creativity displayed in so many forms - furniture, tableware, sculpture, and just art, was fabulous.
