If you are visiting the Ruben Museum don't skip the Bialik Museum next door. It was the home of a national poet, Bialik, for whom the street and museum is named. Gives you a good idea of how one with funds lived at the time as well as some history of Bialik. Very helpful English language descriptions provided -- ask... More

It's interesting to see where one of Israel's great writers lived and worked. The mosaics on the columns on the first floor are very impressive. See this together with Beit Ha'ir (the former City Hall) across the plaza.

When you walk to Bet Bialik, you walk down a street filled with original bauhaus and earlier flats from the very first days of the city of Tel Aviv. It's like walking back in time, and well worth the visit alone. There were two museums included in the price, Bet Bialik, where Israeli national poet Chaim Bialik lived and next... More

The building of the Bialik Museum is worth seeing just for its tile floors. There is an interesting collection of period artifacts and , of course, books of poems and stories written by Bialik.

Lovely restored home of Chaim N Bialik, national poet. They have an English language guide for guests to carry around the museum as most of the signage is in Hebrew. Charge is only 10 NIS for seniors. Located on a beautiful street. Head to Bialik Bar down at the corner afterwards.

We visited this beautiful house, which we loved. However the story of Bialik's life and what he did for Israel is even more beautiful. His story was happy, sad, magical and inspiring! This house is much more than a house! We loved it!

You'll find a wonderful designed exhibition about Chaim Nahman Bialik, his fascinating life and his literature. Also the interior decoration and the architecture of Beit Bialik is impressive. And it is situated in one of the most amazing neighborhoods in Tel Aviv. You'll get an idea how it was a hundred years ago... In the nearby Maniak House, established by... More

In a splendid Bauhaus building, in a quiet corner near the teaming Allenby Street, you will find the so-called Museum of the History of Tel Aviv. Why so called? Because a few phtographs of Mrs Cohen with her son Yankele standing by the Dizzengof water fountain, and the nursery children with their teacher on the Tel Aviv beach, do not... More
