For our weekly escorted tours of Israel, there will be opportunities to go out and see the country’s culture. One popular way of discovering the world of Israel is by seeing its artists. There are several museums available in the country that offer a bold look at some of the most talented artists in the world. From classical paintings to innovative designs, the art museums of Israel are to die for. You’ll just have to see them for yourself. But if you would like to know where to start on your Israel trip, here are 5 of the best art museums in the area.
Tel Aviv Museum of Art
Truly the premier art museum of Tel Aviv, this area holds works from some of the worlds’ most famous artists. These include Vincent Van Gogh, Jackson Pollack, and Pablo Picasso. It features amazing tours, workshops, and other entertaining experiences. This is truly a must-see for your Israel trip.
Tikotin is one of the greatest Japanese art museums. It is dedicated to all aspects of Japanese art and fashion. Tikotin reaches into the history of Japan to showcase the unique artwork that has come out of the country. It includes everything from paintings to pottery. With very few Japanese museums in the middle-east, Israel’s Tikotin museum is a wonderful way of connecting the different sides of the world together.
Cartoon Museum of Art
For something a little more light-hearted, why not check out the Cartoon Museum of Art? This area is home to some of the most talented cartoonists, caricaturists, and comic artists. It celebrates the often neglected art of exaggeration. It is a wonderful look at the impact that cartoon art brings to our daily life. And if you have kids, they will surely want to come.
The Meshuna gallery is as much about atmosphere as it is about the art inside of the building. The very word “meshuna” means “transported.” And that is precisely what you feel like when you walk in. Meshuna is the site for alternative, younger artists who wish to have their work shown. Every piece showcases a sense of freedom that can only be found with younger artists who wish to have a voice and experiment with familiar forms. We highly recommend this gallery for your Israel trip.
Design Museum Holon
All tours of Israel offer unique and beautiful artwork. However, one museum is dedicated to a more immersive artform: design. The Design Museum in Holon is an excellent location for design and creative industries. It is home to innovative ideas and beautiful scenery. Even the building is a grand work of art. It carries a surreal, futuristic circular design. The whole building makes you feel as though you have been transported to a whole other world.
