Holon Design Museum
Holon, a suburban town south of Tel-Aviv is a rather surprising location for possibly the best designed museum in Israel. Yet, since the museum is devoted to design, an outstanding structure is expected after all. And indeed, this is an architectural masterpiece, designed by renowned artist, designer, and architect, Ron Arad. Five giant round bars of steel hover above the museum halls and its entrance. The interior is comprised of a set of halls that host changing exhibitions, most of which are devoted to modern design, both conceptual and industrial, and mostly local, but also international.
Nicknamed as “Hatachana” (The Station) Jaffa’s historical railway station is a short walk from Neve Tsedek. It is open every day of the week, including on weekends. Thursday evening is the best time to visit, when fashion designers gather for an outdoor trade show, accompanied by live music. Vegans will also appreciate the Organic food fair on Friday morning.
A tour of the site can be combined with a guided day tour to Jaffa and Tel-Aviv.
