The Tel-Aviv Museum ranked 75th on the list of the 100 most popular art museums in the world with the highest number of visitors in 2023 the 6th year of inclusion in the prestigious list.  The annual ranking published in the international art magazine The Art Newspaper includes the number of visitors to museums all over the world.

In the challenging year of 2023, the Tel-Aviv Museum welcomed a staggering nearly one million visitors – 906,350 in total. This remarkable turnout places it among world-renowned institutions such as the Guggenheim, MoMA, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the British Museum, and Tate Modern in London. At the pinnacle of the rankings stand the Vatican and the Louvre Museum in Paris, boasting the highest number of visitors globally.

Tania Coen Uzzielli, Director of the Tel-Aviv Museum of Art: “It is exciting and significant to win international recognition these days and to be placed among the leading museums in the world. This achievement gains additional validity in light of the fact that the museum was closed to the public for two whole months with the outbreak of the war. I am grateful to the large crowd of visitors who chose to come to the Tel-Aviv Museum of Art and who continue to visit even in these difficult times. Thanks to them and to the creative and valuable work of the museum staff, we continue to be committed to presenting the best local and international art.”
