Overlooking the Mediterranean along the bank of the Yarkon River and steps from the Port of Tel Aviv, the World’s Jewish Museum will be the hub of cultural and recreational activity and the heart of the city’s vibrant waterfront.
The World’s Jewish Museum’s 22-dunam (5.5-acre) site has an unparalleled location at the northwestern edge of Hayarkon Park, Tel Aviv’s largest green-belt, drawing more than 15 million visitors annually to its acres of tranquil, rainforest-like gardens, bike trails, lakes and hidden treasures. Hayarkon Park is a sanctuary in the city and Tel Aviv’s equivalent to Central Park in New York City.
Unanimously supported by the City of Tel Aviv, the World’s Jewish Museum, under the guidance of The Asper Foundation in partnership with the Tel Aviv-Yafo Foundation secured this extraordinary site in 2015, and is presently working with city engineers and planners to obtain all necessary access and building permits.
Working toward an opening date in 2023, the 75th Anniversary of Israel’s Independence, the World’s Jewish Museum will be the brightest jewel in Tel Aviv, securing the city’s place as one of the world’s great international destinations and a center for innovation, arts, culture, entertainment and nightlife.
This institution will surpass the traditional role of a museum, operating extended hours and become a significant cultural and entertainment hub for Tel Aviv, Israel and the world.
