Design Museum Holon
Visiting Design Museum Holon

Design Museum Holon is pleased to open its doors to visitors. We invite you to view and actively participate in our changing exhibitions, and to partake in the special workshops the Museum offers.
During your guided visit to the Museum you will first be given a tour of the unconventional building itself and learn about the architectural considerations involved in its planning and design, about the materials and technologies used to construct it, and about its unique features. You will then tour the Museum's current exhibition. Through the themes it raises we will discuss the meaning of the term "design" and various related questions, such as: What is an industrial product? What is the difference between design, art, and handcraft? Through the exhibited objects we will explore contemporary designs, both Israeli and international, considering such questions as, What materials are they made of? Which technologies were used to make them? What is the role of the designer and what motivates him or her throughout the design process?

Group Tours

Group visits - a guided tour

Our experienced staff of guides is available to provide guided Museum tours, including both the temporary exhibits and the unconventional building. The guides encourage dialogue and a free exchange of ideas relating to the topic of a given exhibit and more generally to the field of design. The nature and content of the guided tours can be adapted to fit the needs of different groups (adults, students, kids, etc.).

Groups of over 30 visitors receive a discount, and will be divided into smaller groups, each with its own guide.

Group visits - independent tours

Design Museum Holon welcomes groups that wish to explore the exhibitions on their own.
Group visits of more than six individuals need to be coordinated two weeks in advance.
Admission rates are detailed on our Visitor Information page.
Please note that groups that provide their own guide must coordinate their visit in advance.
