‘Culture’ and ‘Tel Aviv’ are virtually synonyms in Israel. This city envelops such a unique atmosphere that welcomes all forms of people, art, food, in short – life. Big influencers in this whirlwind of a city are the Museums in Tel Aviv. History, art, transportation, toys, religion, and science are just a few of the things you will see when visiting the large variety of museums Tel Aviv has to offer. Their sizes range from small one-room gallery hideaways to sprawling multi-campus sites. Many of these hold jobs in Israel for English speakers.
These cultural icons are perfect for extreme weather, during a heat wave or rainstorms and due to the fact that Tel Aviv is fairly small, they are not very far from one another. Here you can absorb the local art and discover local art and artists that have been influential in Israel’s short history, learn about the local wildlife and geology, delve into the Jewish religious influences and so much more.
