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.

Really enjoyed seeing Goor's collected artwork throughout the museum that doubles as her home. The rooftop sculptures and views are especially remarkable.

Must see in old Jaffa if you like art. Takes no more than an hour to tour the facility. There are lots of stairs, but one elevator. Very eclectic pieces.

Fascinating collection of art and objets d'art in an old Port building. Beautiful views of the old Port and the sea from the roof top. Worth the price of admission.

The artist lives on site and displays her work along with some other artists works. Metal sculptures dominate. A gift shop with small pieces for sale.

We went to her museum and was amazed at the amount of eclectic artwork throughout her house (where she actually lives) by her and others. It is extremely well done and worth the visit.
