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.

Every inch of this museum is fascinating, including Goor's work but also her collection. Her African Art is amazing, worth a trip.

Really interesting place to visit with recent history and real life story of the owner. In Jaffa which has a great ambiance.

We spent over two hours in this unique space. Ilana’s own work is beautifully done, but her eye for selecting work by other artists is a lesson in art appreciation. The African collection is amazing and the whimsy on the rooftop rivals the magnificent view...More

Make your way to visit this cool museum and gift shop. Interesting art and amazing decks that overlook the beautiful Mediterranean. Bought an amazing ring from the gift shop. Even met the artist Ilana Goor who actually lives there!
