The Design Museum Holon in Tel Aviv is truly on the cities hidden treasures. Opened in March 2010, this futuristic looking complex is actually one of the foremost museums highlighting design and contemporary culture.
Offering an eclectic mix of new programs and exhibits throughout the year, items on display come from a wide range of genres, including fashion, architecture, sculptures and art, even comic books. For those interested in history, exhibits of the same genres are also available.
One of the most impressive parts of the Design Museum is actually the building itself at 3,700 square meters, or about 40,000 square feet. Hard to miss, the façade includes a red wrapping ribbon, while the galleries are both spacious and optically pleasing.
Another great element is that the museum is very family friendly with weekly workshops to make various crafts, educational tours and even sleepovers—serving nothing less than cereal boxes and juice in the morning.
Located on Pinhas Eilon Street, there is convenient parking located right around the corner, but if you are taking public transportation, bus lines from Tel Aviv include #3 from Alenbi street, #71 from Namir street, #89 from Ibn Gvirol street and numbers 99, 11 and 2 will also get you there. The museum is opened on most days except Sunday’s with altered hours on holidays, so check in advance.
