Only been once before and that was many years ago. Lots to see with excellent cafe for lunch. The exhibits were outstanding, especially the glass room.

This is a very important exhibition and the largest of its kind that includes the selection of the World Press Photo. Go and see it fast since the exhibition ends on January 18

A trip to the Eretz Israel Museum is a 'must do' for any traveller to Tel Aviv. From the exhilaration that first comes with successfully managing to get there by bus, to making it to all the pavillions before closing time, each visit to this wonderful museum is a unique experience.

This past March I left Jerusalem and journeyed to Tel Aviv to take in the then recently opened 'Local Judaica' exhibition about early Israeli Judaica manufacturers which I had read about in 'The Jerusalem Post' back home in Canada some weeks previously. It is a wonderful exhibit and fills several rooms, albeit in the farthest pavilion from the main entrance and on a day when they closed early !

Be sure to check their excellent website for listings of their present, past and upcoming exhibitions so as to avoid potential disappointment and to help in planning your trip in advance.

The entrance staff are welcoming and accomodating. The map of the grounds is simple and easy to use. Everything is well laid out and clearly labelled. The wasrooms are spotless. Even the security staff are personable and helpful.

The gift shop is a treasure house with a lot of things not available elsewhere. Some are affordable while others much less so. In some ways it is an additional exhibition to take in.
Make sure you give yourself time to visit it on your way out.

The staff are quite cultured, very helpful and spoke better English than I. They even offered me an extra one of their bags for some things that were spilling out of my satchel. One disappointment was that they had not been able to convince the museum curatorial staff to produce a catalogue of the Judaica exhibit I had just viewed.

Exiting the museum and crossing the street one can easily catch a bus back to downtown central Tel Aviv. However, as is usual wherever I go in Israel, it seems the bus I want is always the most popular with locals and and only runs once every 30 minutes. The previous one having just passed by !!

This time was no exception though it was fun to see parts of Tel Aviv where average citizens live and listen to the excited Ivrit chatter (incomprehensible to this writer) of the dozens of IDF personnel who had also been to the museum that day. I usually get off a bit earlier than my stop and walk down some of the familiar streets towards Allenby Street.

On a warm sunny day one can spend hours in this museum and its grounds. Taken as a whole The Eretz Israel Museum experience is an exemplary tribute to the foresight of Tel Aviv's founding citizens and their sense of history and cultural presevation.

A visit here is time truly well spent.

Outdoors. Take your time and stroll the grounds. Really liked the olive presses. The gift shop is extensive.

This is a lovely history museum, located in Ramat Aviv, in northern Tel Aviv.
While the temporary exhibitions are nice, its the permanent ones that make the museum special.
Those exhibits scan through the history of the land of Israel, starting with biblical time (and even prior to that), through its very interesting history, with numerous Judaica and other aspects.
There's an archeological dig within the museum compound and a very nice Planetarium with a lovely show.
