And the Ilana Gur Museum is a necessary visit. This is the house-museum of a modern Israeli artist, sculptor, designer, in which she continues to live. The house is filled with a huge number of works of art as the artist, and other sculptors, artists, designers ... There are also various decorative arts. The peculiarity of this museum is that any, even household, object in its space acquires artistic significance. There is a Russian-language guide to the museum, which tells about the life and work of Ilana Gur and the history of each of the works. The museum also has a beautiful shop with a wide range of decorative and jewelry products of the artist.
Why is this place unmissable? For a couple of reasons, it's not so much a museum as one of the artists homes, therefore you get a better sense of the art in this environment, the proof of that for me is that I would have dismissed much of the artists work had I seen it in a more sterile museum atmosphere, but here it makes sense. Also the house itself is gorgeous and is a work of art, and the roof garden has one of the best views on the Mediterranean.
It is an impressive museum. Very-very interesting and unique place. Worth to visit absolutely. I arrived 15 minutes before closing. The nice desk office lady told me I can look around the museum quickly and because of the short time I didn't have to pay entrance fee. From the rooftop the view amazing, and atmosphere of the terrace is incredible. There are many uncountable items in the museum and -because of that- this is not a typical and classical museum. This is more than a museum!
