Tel-Aviv Museum of Art

Among the many new summer exhibitions at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, the children will enjoy the exhibition "Gathering of Birds" by the artist Shira Zelwer. The exhibition includes about 400 bird sculptures of different species from sparrows and crows to spectacular and oversized birds such as flamingos. The artist based her exhibition on the "Atlas of the Birds of our Country", and the 86 species presented in the exhibition include a selection of birds that are observed in Israel in a variety of places and seasons. The museum offers a number of creative workshops for children including sculpture, photography, painting, comics and animation, urban birding tours for the whole family accompanied by a bird drawing workshop, and more. It is also recommended to visit with the children the unique and charming miniature rooms of Helena Rubinstein and participate in a magical diorama workshop where the children set up galleries and spaces and document them with the help of cell phone cameras.
