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. less

"Adina Plastelina" brings to life the ancient Milefiori technique, using precious metals & polymer clay, to create timeless and prestigious hand-made jewelry. A visit to this unique gallery includes guidance and viewing of a hypnotic demonstration video along with watching the creation process live. The Mysterious room of "Adina Plastelina":In the year 2006, during archaeological excavations in the gallery, the ruins of a round ancient structure were revealed. The many and varied incredible archaeological artifacts that were discovered serve as a testimony to the lives and activities of local residents - who have influenced the history of Israel for 3,500 years, spanning from the late-Bronze Age until today.The exhibition is permanent and open to all with no charge. less
