The foremost among the city`s museums, also occupies a distinguished position within the artistic community in Israel.
Founded in 1987, it is the only museum of the country exclusively dedicated to Israeli art.
This collection traces the development of Israeli art from its beginnings and through the 1920s – when the Modernist style of painting in Israel emerged – to contemporary Israeli art. Israeli artists explore topics as varied as local landscapes and Mediterranean light, Jewish tradition and its complex attitude toward figurative art, and socio-political as well as urban issues.
Its objective is to promote contemporary Israeli art, exhibiting it next to works of art by Israeli artists that have become part of our classical artistic heritage.
