“ISRAEL MUSEUM _ TEL AVIV”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2012

This is the place to visit if you want to understand what life was like in the area of the Holy Land more than a thousand years ago. It has a great Glass Pavilion and really interesting explanation of coin making etc. This palce will keep you interested for the whole day.

“Not particularly exciting”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2012

As another reviewer stated, the highlight of this museum is an archeological dig. That was very interesting. However during a hot Tel Aviv summer, a big draw of going to a museum is to get into air conditioning an the dig is obviously outside. Also the other attractions are very spread out. There is a lot of needless walking.

“depends on the temp exhibitions”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2012

The museum has a basic archeology collection which is not that exciting unless you are really into that kind of thing. It also includes a small postal museum which is quite well done and some themed halls around various themes such as "Glass" or "Copper". If this is all there was int he museum it would get three stars only but the nice thing about this institution is that it usually has temporary exhibits with interesting themes - often photos connected to Israel history. So I would say have a look at the Internet and see if the temp exhibits interest you and decide that way. I write a bit about temp exhibits last time I visited (which can change) and other cultural reviews - often Israel oriented - on my blog - see my profile for more details.

“Absolute Must visit”

Tells the tales that often people don't know of how these heroes achieved what they did for us to all benefit from today. Very moving and inspiring.
