Overview

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.

Ilana Gur is one of Israel's top artists. Here work is at times provocative and can make you smile. The museum is on 3 levels, not very large with a fantastic balcony overlooking the sea.

If there is one gallery to visit in Jaffa, it should be the Ilana Goor Museum. It features a lot of Ilana Goor's own art on the main floor and a wonderful collection of various tastes on the upper floors, such as the African art...More

I love museums like this because they are much more interesting than just a bunch of paintings. Very interesting and great decor, I spent ~30 mins here just taking in all the different room setups.
