About Ilana Goor Museum
The Ilana Goor Museum, distinct in its dual purpose as both the gallery and private home of the artist, is a uniquely hidden gem in the old city of Jaffa. Housed in a historically rooted eighteenth-century structure, the museum allows visitors to see and feel the eclectic collection of famous Israeli sculptor Ilana Goor with Old Jaffa as a background storyline and setting. Within the walls of the beautifully-renovated structure lay over 500 artworks, both by Goor herself and by guest Israeli and international artists included in the museum collection. For the first time in Israel, you have the opportunity to admire works of art from the point of view of the artist/collector rather than as exhibits in a sterile academic environment. Despite the Museum's eclectic nature, each room features creations from different places and times. Each work of art has a different background and a story all its own. The Museum's uniqueness lies in the unexpected contexts generated by each artist, both on the human and on the visual level.

One of the many places you should visit in Tel Aviv. Do not miss the opportunity. The museum has a collection of more than 500 works of art, either created by Ilana Goor or collected by her over a period of 50 years.

Fascinating collection of Iana Goor's own work, her father's and much contemporary Israeli art and curios. It's a rabbit warren of an old stone house on three floors with outside terraces at the very top of Jaffa Hill. One of the most amazing plaes I've...More

We just stumbled upon this museum, and were positively surprised by the beauty and rich international art collection that Mrs. Goor has assembled and has herself produced. We love to collect as well, and have various masks and statues from Africa, but of course nothing...More

This is a museum of her own work and her collection. The art was interesting, but the views of the sea and harbor were the best part. Doesn’t take long to see it all.

This museum is also the artists home and workplace. The number of artifacts is big and very fascinating in all their diversity. The collection is eclectic with focus on sculpture, wood carving and metalware. Since the house is old (and high) there are lots of...More
