There are over 20 Tel Aviv museums. Who can visit so many? Here is a short review of the main museums in this city...
Eretz in Hebrew means Land, in this case the land of Israel, which is what this museum is all about.
What are you going to see here?
This museum focuses on the history and culture of the land and has
exhibits in archaeology, folklore and traditional arts and crafts.
You can learn, for example, how wine, oil and flour were manufactured traditionally. I have to admit that I haven’t been to this museum for a long time, but the museum keeps adding and changing exhibitions to the extent that I’m sure it is even better now than it was the last time I was there.

people throughout that time frame. It includes exhibitions, education
and provides Jewish people the option to find their roots and identity –
tracing back their last name and using other techniques. When the
Museum opened in 1978 it was considered ahead of its time as far as the
concept of a museum is concerned. In fact, this place is far more than a
museum and has tremendous impact on the lives of Jews who visit the
place to find out about their heritage. It really is the "Museum of the
