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.

Beautiful house full of art, tastefully displayed, feast for the eyes, great store. I even was lucky to meet Ilana, who lives in a house. Visit this jam while in Jaffa.

My wife and I visited here on a Saturday. The sky blue views from the roof top were extraordinary. This lovely home near the Clock Tower in Jaffa is four stories of art from Iliana Goor, other Israeli artists, and some well known international artists....More

We spent around a half hour here. Art was interesting. The best thing are the balconies with great views and comfortable seats and neat sculpture. Not that much to do in Old Jaffo but shop and/or eat, so this was different.

The museum is packed with metal and wood work, all unique. The sea view from the top balcony is relaxing. An inspiring place.

This was certainly the highlight of Old Jaffa. It feature Ilana Goor's art, along with her acquisitions. Brochure and guide provide useful information, and the setting both inside and on the patios is elegant. The table display was probably the highlight.

Amazing museum in heart of Old Yaffo; ancient building and environment support feeling historical continuety. Archeological artifacts related to various historical periods are presented. Also as sculptures and installations of Ilana Goor.
