With more than 200 museums awaiting the visitor to Israel – the highest number of museums per capita in the world – it’s little wonder that the CNN Travel site chose to spotlight their list of the top 10 museums in the Holy Land.

 

The list includes some expected entries – such as the world-renowned Israel Museum and Yad Vashem in Jerusalem and the Tel Aviv Museum of Art. But it also includes some “off-the-beaten track” museums, all worth a visit according to CNN travel writer Netta Ahituv, a journalist living in Tel Aviv. These include the Umm El Fahem Art Museum and the Museum of Art Ein Harod.

 

The list reads as follows:

 

  1. Israel Museum: “Israel’s largest cultural institution”: www.imjnet.org.il
  2. Tel Aviv Museum of Art: the writer recommends beginning your visit in the new wing which was opened in 2011 (“Many adore it, others hate it “) and ending in the older complex:  www.tamuseum.com
  3. Museum of Art Ein Harod: Israel’s first museum that has “amasses 16,000 pieces since its first opening” in the 1930s. www.museumeinharod.org.il
