The Haifa Museum of Art is one of the leading art museums in Israel and is dedicated to exploring the world of local and international contemporary art. The Museum boasts over 7,000 eclectic works that reflect the changing trends and movements in Israeli and contemporary art.
The collection can be divided into two sub-divisions- the painting and sculpture collection and the graphic works collection. The Museum houses a unique New Media Center archive with several tens of video works- the goal being to create the first Israeli library/archive of video art and allowing the general public to access it.
Since 1977, the Haifa Museum of Art has been housed in it's present building, in the Hadar district of Haifa in a stone, preserved building. The choice of building for the Museum is specifically meaningful due to it being located at the meeting point of three different neighborhoods; one Jewish, one Muslim and one Christian. This fact reflects the multi-cultural, intercultural role that the Museum plays.
