Tel-Aviv is the center of the Israeli art and culture scene, and as such, is home to various museums. The leading art museums in the city are the Eretz Israel Museum (MUZA), the Nahum Gutman Museum of Art, the Rubin Museum, and The Tel-Aviv Museum of Art - one of Israel’s largest and most important art museums.
The Tel-Aviv Museum of Art was envisioned and founded in 1932 by the first Mayor of Tel Aviv, Meir Dizengoff, originating in his private home on Rothschild Boulevard (and changing locations since). The museum’s collection includes art from the 16th century to the present, but it’s main focus is on modern and contemporary art.
