This architectural gem of a museum houses some of the finest art collections in the Middle East, from classic to contemporary.

Visit the Tel Aviv Museum of Art (TAM) to see the works by local Jewish-Israeli artists as well as leading international artists such as Jackson Pollock, Kandinsky, Monet, Dalí, Rodin, Van Gogh, Klimt and Picasso.

The Tel Aviv Museum of Art (TAM) opened even before the state of Israel was established. In 1932, the first mayor of the city, Meir Dizengoff, established the museum in his home on Rothschild Boulevard.

The museum’s present-day Main Building on Shaul Hamelech Boulevard opened in 1971 and houses the permanent collections. See local art from the 20th century onwards in the Department of Israeli Art. The Department of Modern and Contemporary Art showcases international works from the mid-19th century onwards. Find eye-catching works in the Department of Prints and Drawings and the Department of Photography. Of course you can’t miss the Old Masters Department, with outstanding works from the 16th to the 19th century. Last but not least, the Department of Architecture and Design will inspire you to think outside the square.

Thinking outside the square is exactly what the American architect Preston Scott Cohen did when he designed the museum’s futuristic wing, the Herta and Paul Amir Building. Light streams in from the central light well, drawing in Tel Aviv’s sunny character. Its two floors above and three floors below ground level are full of inspiring artworks, so you could spend all day in this wing alone.

Apart from admiring art and architecture, also come to TAM to listen to concerts and lectures in its auditorium, see international cult movies in its cinema and attend creative workshops and art classes.

The Lola Beer Ebner Sculpture Garden and Nata's Garden are the museum’s creative outdoor spaces. Also visit the ever-changing social and political modern art exhibits in the Helena Rubinstein Pavilion on Tarsat Street, included in your ticket price.

The Tel Aviv Museum of Art is located in the city center and can be reached by public transportation. The museum is open daily, except Sundays. TAM stays open until late on Tuesday and Thursday nights. Guided tours in English are available.
