This was an unexpected surprise. While walking around the streets of Ramat Gan I stumbled upon a museum that I honestly think I’m one of the few Israelis who would find it interesting – the Museum for Far East Art. It’s not a very big museum, but it is bigger than what I expected for this type of theme in Israel. It comes as no surprise, however, that while I was visiting it was dead-empty. The bored guard at the entrance almost seemed surprised someone actually came in to have a look.

 

Museum of Far East Art : Ramat Gan

 

What’s to see? well, it’s based on an arts collection donated to this museum by one Yehiel Nehari, a wealthy Jewish-Israeli collector who had a passion for the east, with various East-Asian items dating between 13th to 20th century.

 

So, let’s go in…
