This tour is great to take at any time, but make the most of the museums on a hot or a rainy day.
These are your choice of visit: The Museum of the Jewish People (“Beit Hatfutsot” in Hebrew). This Museum is unique among the world humanities museums, both by the way its exhibition is presented and also by the richness of its collection.

Walking through the Gates of Family, Community and Culture, you will view the awesome Memorial Column. Strolling through the Nations Gate you shall learn about the Jewish life in its very core, the way the Jewish People have managed to sustain centuries old traditions, enriched with the life and habits of the Nations the Jews have lived among. The Tour of the Tel Aviv Museum of Art. This museum shows the best works of both international and local Israeli artists. And if you want to go to just one traditional art museum when in Israel, make it this one! The tour will lead through Museum's collection representing the leading artists of the late 19th and the first half of the 20th centuries and many of the major movements of the modern art that period, which can be discussed in details: Fauvism, Expressionism, Cubism, Russian Constructivism, and Surrealism. You shall also enjoy the French art, from the Impressionists and Post-Impressionists to the School of Paris, and the key Abstract and Surrealists artists’ works, as well. The Tour is the Yitzhak Rabin Center. At this tremendously remarkable Memorial we shall concentrate on its centerpiece - The Israeli Museum, where you shall explore the history of Israel via visual exhibit halls, each focused on historical turning points in the country’s development. We shall slowly descend a downward spiral, visiting the exhibition rooms, enfolding two parallel stories: the history of the State and Israeli society, and the biography of Yitzhak Rabin. Finally, walk to the highly impressive Observation Terrace where from the whole of Tel Aviv can be seen.
