Updated: 13 December 2016
The Tel Aviv Museum of Art was first founded in 1932 and stands today as one of Israel’s most exciting art museums, housing impressive collections of contemporary and classical art and plenty of homegrown Israeli art.

The museum was first opened to the public in 1932 in the building of the famous mayor of Tel Aviv Meir Dizengoff, on the famous Rothschild Boulevard.  In 1959, The Helena Rubinstein Pavilion for Contemporary Art was added to the Tel Aviv Museum of Art and has since served as one of Tel Aviv’s major cultural hubs. The museum’s collection, which initially included only a few dozen items, has grown continuously over the years thanks to donations by collectors and artists. The museum holds a dynamic mix of temporary and and permanent exhibitions in a wide variety of fields, including sculpture, drawings, photography, prints and video installations, and architecture and design.
