The opening of the new Herta and Paul Amir Building has recently put the Tel Aviv Museum of Art front and center as a must-see destination for art lovers from across the globe.

“Since we opened, the amount of tourists coming here is something that the museum never knew before,” says Shuli Kislev, acting director of the museum. “You can hear a lot of English here,” she adds with a laugh.

The Tel Aviv Museum of Art is focused solely on Israeli art, and the new space allows for more exhibit possibilities than ever for the museum’s collections.

One New York visitor calls the Amir Building “the nicest new venue in all of Israel.”
