Is it worth taking a tour guide to visit the top museums in Tel Aviv?

The answer depends. If you live here as I do, then you have enough time to explore the wonderful variety of Tel Aviv museums at your leisure.

But if you are here on a brief visit, then my answer is yes. A guide can help you get around between the museums, and focus on your interests, making the best of your short stay in Tel Aviv.

And even if you've visited these museums in the past, a guide will help you will see things you might have overlooked on your own.

First Stop on Museums Tel Aviv Tour 
Beit Hatfutsot - Museum of the Jewish People 

First stop on your museum tour is the Museum of the Jewish People, “Beit Hatefutsot” in Hebrew. ‎

This museum is truly unique, telling the ongoing and incredible story of the Jewish ‎people, from the days of King David three thousand years ago till today.

The stories ‎are told in video, special exhibits, sound, sculpture and interactive displays. ‎

We will walk through museum 'gates' learning about the amazing diversity of ‎Jewish life and traditions around the world from places as diverse as Poland -

Ethiopia -

and more...

There are exhibitions covering different aspects of Jewish life such as Family, Community, and Faith, with eighteen authentic models of synagogues from as far back as 2,000 years ago.

The last section is Return to Zion Gate, which depicts Jews yearning for the land of Israel ‎through the centuries, the establishment of modern day Zionism and the waves of Aliyah ‎‎(immigration) that led  to the establishment of the State of Israel.‎

There is a also a great exhibit for kids called 'Heroes - Trailblazers of the Jewish People.'

through to today's contemporary art.

The impressionist and post-impressionist collections are first-class, and there is art representing most of the major ‎movements of the modern art era: ‎Fauvism, Expressionism, Cubism, Russian Constructivism and ‎Surrealism.

The museum has the largest collection in the world of Israeli art, such as this 1920's scene from life in Israel "Resting at Noon" painted by Nahum Gutman.

Israeli Museum - Yitzhak Rabin Center

The third and final stop of the tour is the Israeli Musuem and Yitzhak Rabin Center.

At thhe Rabin center, via photography and films, you will be exposed to  the biography and legacy of the late Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin whose life ‎was cut short in 1995 by the devastating assassination. ‎

In parallel, the Israeli Museum explores the history of Israel ‎via exhibits, each one focused on historical turning points in the country’s ‎development.

As we slowly descend a downward spiral, we will be immersed in these two parallel stories: the biography of Yitzhak Rabin, juxtaposed with the history of Israel and Israeli society, its conflicts, social ‎challenges and the dilemmas the country faced and continues to faces.
