The Design Museum Holon

The Design Museum Holon is part of a project to make Holon into an influential cultural and educational center., the thought being that design will be an important export industry for Israel. The museum is located in the cultural hub of Holon that includes a library, theater and cinematheque.


Design Museum Holon is the only one of its kind in Israel, and is intended to be the national platform for illustrating the importance of industrial, fashion, textile and jewelry design in our lives. In particular, it emphasizes the importance of design in a young emerging state and Israeli design within the context of world design.

Rather than showing permanent displays, the museum shows thematic exhibitions encompassing the entire museum that continue over many months. The intent of each exhibition is to put together (or design!) an entire story so as to transmit something of signifance to visitors. The advantage of this, of course, is that the museum also stays fresh and can be visited again and again. Be sure, though, to look up on line what exhibition is currently showing to be sure that it meets your interests. All the exhibits are clearly described in Hebrew and English. Audio is available in Hebrew through a QR code, but not English. Guided tours for groups can be arranged.


Before stepping inside, notice the iconic facade of the building made up of 5 curved bronze-colored, weathered-steel ribbons. A cafeteria is attached to the building that sells hot and cold drinks and snack foods. Chairs and tables are also set up outside. If you need something more substantial you are only a short distance from a shopping mall.

Then you are sure to love my two new books "In and Around Jerusalem for Everyone - The Best Walks, Hikes and Outdoor Pools" and "The Struggle for Utopia - A History of Jewish, Christian and Islamic Messianism". Both books are available on Amazon and in Jerusalem bookstores. Click on each of the titles for information, reviews and purchase information.
