Israel’s museums are fun to explore – and our friends at Israel21c give us their top favorites to visit with kids!
NAHUM GUTMAN MUSEUM OF ART, Tel Aviv
Nahum Gutman was a painter, illustrator, sculptor and children’s author whose family donated his works to the Nahum Gutman Museum of Art. Exhibits have an interactive element and are geared to younger visitors. This museum is in the picturesque Neve Tzedek neighborhood on a little street called Shimon Rokach (not to be confused with Rokach Road, a main thoroughfare that is also in Tel Aviv).
MADATECH, Israel’s National Museum of Science, Technology and Space, Haifa
MadaTech is the place to explore, experience, discover and learn science through play. It’s all hands-on at this museum, with dozens of science-themed exhibits and 3D movies, plus an outdoor, hands-on Noble Energy Science Park. Even the location is cool — the museum is housed in the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology’s first home.
