The Tel Aviv Museum of Art—its galleries and sculpture garden—is set to reopen to the public on Dec. 1 amid coronavirus restrictions. It will present new solo exhibitions by Israeli artists with the Jeff Koons exhibition extended until January.

Other museums throughout Israel permitted to open their doors again on Tuesday include the Israel Museum in Jerusalem, the Eretz Israel Museum in Tel Aviv and Haifa’s Madatech—the Israel National Museum of Science, Technology and Space.

“We are pleased and excited to reopen the museum’s gates to the general public and hope that all museums and cultural institutions in Israel will join us and reopen soon,” said museum director Tania Coen Uzzielli said in a statement. “The museum is one of the safest spaces to visit as we strictly adhere to all Israeli Ministry of Health guidelines. A mix of wonderful and new exhibitions of Israeli and international art awaits visitors, along with classics and masterpieces by the great masters.”

Visitors have to order tickets online, and admission to all museums will be limited.
