Tel Aviv Museum of Art

Kikar Rabin
Museum

The Herta and Paul Amir Building here is the city’s boldest and newest architectural achievement. Built over the course of a decade, the 200,000-square-foot concrete structure is designed like a series of geometric boxes that subtly shift and turn upon one another to create the galleries within. Designed by Preston Scott Cohen, the addition nearly doubled the museum’s exhibition space, providing galleries devoted to the entire history of the Israeli contemporary art movement. The on-site Pastel restaurant has earned raves for its interior design and is an excellent spot for a pick-me-up after strolling the gallery halls.
