The Ilana Goor Museum, is a hidden gem in the old city of Jaffa. Within the walls of the beautifully renovated 18th century building lay over 500 artworks.

The Ilana Goor Museum, distinct in its dual purpose as both the gallery and private home of the artist, is a uniquely hidden gem in the old city of Jaffa. 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.

A visit to the Ilana Goor Museum in Tel Aviv, Israel is an adventure for the senses.
