Strategically located on the Archeological site of Tel Kasilla , this important museum complex holds a few nicely designed buildings in a beautifully landscaped area , over the Yarkon river , only a few minutes bus ride from Tel Aviv center .
We came mainly for the Israeli "Craft and Design Biannale 2020" which was very interesting . Highly recommended to book a guided short tour (included in the entry fees , Seniors pay 50%) with Hilla , our attentive and friendly guide .
Unfortunately , due to Covid19 (corona virus) some of the ongoing regular exhibits buildings were closed , but whatever was opened , enabled us to to enjoy our visit in a relaxed atmosphere .

We came primarily for the Tel Aviv Crafts and Design Biennale, but the whole museum was lovely.

We really appreciated the way the curators integrated many of the contemporary exhibits from the Biennale with relevant portions of the permanent exhibit, which focuses on the Land of Israel.

The Biennale itself was fun, with a wide variety of innovative ideas on display.

The campus is spacious and nicely landscaped, with exhobit buildings scatered thoughout for a fun indoor-outdoor experience. We visited in the evening so the temperature was pleasant.

An added plus: The museum very strictly complies with Ministry of Health regulations around the covid pandemic. They make sure the exhibit halls are not overcrowded, they limit the number of tickets sold, they have alco-gel dispensers stationed throughout the campus. All the necessary logistics were executed intelligently and pleasantly.

Two huge thumbs up!

This was a really good museum, they have wide-ranging exhibits with sections on coins, stamps, old things made of glass, the Rothschilds, and many other things. There are some old excavations outside which are the remains of a 3000-year old city. These are interesting but there is not much explanation about them. You also get a good view over Tel Aviv

It was a rainy day but we still enjoyed 3 hours here exploring the museum. You can book the planetarium shows in English by reserving in advance but we ended up seeing 'The Stars' in Hebrew (despite not knowing the language) and it was still a must see. Our favourite parts of the museum where the archaeological finds in the grounds including the flour mill and olive oil press.

Went in Nov 17 but only just got round to writing review - .ake sure this is one of the museums you visit if tripping to Israel.

There were multiple Museums inside this plot of large land ranging from the history of coinage Post, immigration museum , glass, pottery, art WELL worth a visit with interesting range of topics.

Plan for a whole day.

The cafe attached (outside) serves nice food too.

The museum is spread out over a lovely campus like property which includes an ancient mosaic floor found in situ. There are other mosaic floors displayed as well as wine and olive presses spread out among the lovely landscaped paths. Each type of collection is in its own building--coins, post office, folklore and more. The English captions are well written and each display is arranged well and easy to view. The gift shop is large and filled with beautiful and interesting items all made in Israel and the dairy restaurant on site is excellent with friendly service and reasonable prices.

This museum is rather large, and certainly interesting - however there is surprisingly little in English, but there are plenty of pictures and more than enough information can be gained anyway. Another point, which I found quite shocking, is that it makes almost no reference to the period between the end of Roman rule (expulsion of the Jews) and the 1880s, and the return of the early Zionists. I know that it is a museum about Israel, but it is almost as if the land on which Israel stands simply disappeared for 1500 years. That said, I would agree with the other reviewer that the Rothschild Exhibition is fascinating. And you do get a good view from the museum across the city, although when I went the observation deck was closed which was a shame. it would be silly not to visit it, but I wouldn't say it is the best museum ever - definitely put it on your to-do list if you plan to spend your time visiting museums, but don't go massively out of your way to visit it. I suppose the best way to sum it up, is that it is definitely THE tel Aviv museum if you want to learn about the history of Israel, but it isn't really world-class.

A great museum.

Arranged over a large site, with about ten specialised pavillions, the history of certain aspects of Israeli society are comprehensively and interestingly covered. Not every pavilion is that interesting for the non-specialist in the field, however some are just fascinating such as the Rothschild Exhibition. To add to that, you see some breathtaking views of the Tel Aviv skyline from some beautiful gardens.

Great museum. It is neat to see the entire structure of Jerusalem and to learn more about the country. It is done really well.

This is an outstanding museum, many different pavilions with specific themes. In particular the Rothschild exhibit was interesting as well as the glass pavilion and mosaics on the site. There is also a decent cafe adjoining the gift store.
