The Tel Aviv Museum of Art is one of Israel's premier artistic institutions, housing works from the 16th century to the present. Boasting drawings, paintings, sculptures and photography, this museum exhibits pieces from both local and international artists. Since 1932 – when the museum was founded by Tel Aviv's first mayor – the museum has been welcoming art aficionados who have come to admire the Matisses and Streichmans. For many visitors, the building's striking architecture enhances (and can even overshadow) the museum’s art offerings. Regardless of whether you're an art or architecture enthusiast (or neither), recent travelers describe the Tel Aviv Museum of Art as a must-see attraction.

The Tel Aviv Museum of Art sits in the heart of the city in the Mahane Rabin (HaKirya) neighborhood. It can be reached via bus Nos. 9, 18, 28, 70, 90 and 111. The museum welcomes visitors from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Saturday; from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday; and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Friday. The museum is closed on Sunday. Admission costs 50 Israeli shekel  (less than $15) for adults; children 18 and younger can enter for free. For more information, check out the Tel Aviv Museum of Art's website.

#1 The Tayelet

It's easy to see why walking and biking are the preferred modes of transportation here: With a 3-mile-long beachside boardwalk to cruise, taking a taxi or a bus just feels like a missed opportunity. Tel Aviv's Tayelet – a pedestrian-only street – runs along the Mediterranean from the Old Tel Aviv Port to Jaffa, offering bikers and strollers spectacular views of the sea. On the inland side, the Tayelet grants easy access to Tel Aviv's prime hotel areas, as well as numerous restaurants and nightlife venues. On the other side of the promenade, you'll find beautiful beaches, including hot spots like Gordon Beach.
