About the American Friends of Museums in Israel:
Israel has the highest number of museums (more than 200) per capita in the world today. All but the largest are relatively unknown in the U.S. In order to help remedy this situation, the American Friends of Museums in Israel’s mission is to represent and raise funds for the following remarkable museums whose concentration ranges from contemporary art and design to history and culture:
Design Museum Holon, Haifa City Museum, Haifa Museum of Art, Hermann Struck Museum, Mané-Katz Museum, National Maritime Museum, Tikotin Museum of Japanese Art, Museum on the Seam, Jerusalem – A Socio Political Contemporary Art Museum, and Tower of David Museum of the History of Jerusalem.
The American Friends of Museums in Israel recognizes, promotes, and honors its outstanding partner museums in Israel by providing exhibition, program, project and financial support through the generosity of its donors. In addition, the organization offers heightened visibility for its partner museums at special events, including annual galas in New York and Chicago.
