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.

I love museums like this because they are much more interesting than just a bunch of paintings. Very interesting and great decor, I spent ~30 mins here just taking in all the different room setups.

The museum is in a home with numerous sculptures all of which were either organic or furniture. It felt as if the sculptures lived in the house and used the furniture. It felt as if they would move.

This is a n artist's home turned into a museum of her work and her collections. While there were some interesting pieces, I would rate the overall experience as only average.
