Israeli Children's Museum

I took a group of teenagers to the blind museum.
It was the most unique museum I've ever been to. They really make you feel as if you are naturally blind through the total darkness. The guides are phenomenal. The experience is humbling. Some kids may find it very scary. As would some adults.

Design Museum Holon

Reviewed By Harold J - Tel Aviv, Tel Aviv, Israel

DMH is a curators' "tour de force". Every visit always leaves me with unforgettable images and new unexpected experiences. This happened in the past with a famous Japanese designer's fashions and now the tragically late iconic Ronit Elkabetz's fashion flair and artistic genius. I personally discovered the huge impact of creativity in fashion design that I took for granted prior to this encounter. Also the exhibit's design itself was breathtaking except for the over-intrusive audio that was completely superfluous and almost ruined the show. Less would be more. Also other museums would isolate the seated video screening from the main hall.

Invitation to Silence

Reviewed By dlelonek - Long Island, New York

This is part of the Children's Museum complex in Holon. The Invitation to Silence was interesting but the exhibit on Blindness was much better. Silence gives you an idea of the hardship of those who are deaf, as you wear earphones that cut out most of the sounds around you. The Blindness exhibit is totally in the ptich black, and that gives you an excellent idea of the challengers faced by those who are blind.

Ice Peaks

Reviewed By Gedera_Guy - Gedera

Situated next to the Peres Park and not far from the Childrens museum in Holon ,the immediate area is a magnet for fun-loving folk who just want to chill out (pardon the pun !! ) .
The only reason I initially visited this ice rink, was because the kids wanted to go !! .After a few visits , I found myself wobbling around on the ice, as everyone else seemed to be cruising around in warp 9 !! .
My advice is arrive with ear plugs , you'll need them !!.
The attraction has a viewing gallery for those waiting to skate , or have another reason not to skate .
There is a shop where visitors can buy ice skates , should they wish .There are a handful of vending machines for those who want a quick snack .
On Saturdays when I visit , there are sometimes displays by youthful skaters , which act as inspiration for all the awe-struck spectators .
Skating sessions are around 40 mins
Also , there is sometimes a tutor that can be hired for around 15 mins at a time
Special offers can be had using credit cards

A diverse range of cactii in the heart of the city makes for an amusing way to while away a few moments.
It's not the same as seeing the cactii in Arizona but it's better than nothing.

Puppet Museum

Reviewed By zaquito - Israel

The city Holon is famous for its investment in cultural establishments for children. The more famous attractions are the Yamit 2000 water park and the adjacent Children's museum. Visitors looking for a free day out will also enjoy the fabulous Gan Sippur (story park) - this is a theme park divided into landscaped sections, each of which tells one of Israels' children's favorite bedtime stories, with imaginative and artistic sculptures incorporating children's playground games. Following the culture theme for children, the Puppet Museum is not to be missed - and it's free!!. The museum exhibits all kinds of puppets, both Israeli and international, activity corners and mini film shows. Here you'll find soft muppet-like puppets, lovingly chiseled wooden antique-style puppets, carnival masks and more... There's also a puppet theatre school, a 160-seat puppet theatre, and a library and archive. Organised groups (from age nursery school and upwards) can enjoy guided tours and puppet- and mask-making workshops (advanced booking with entrance fee required). Visitors are welcome to the museum with no advance booking (and entrance is free) on Wednesday afternoons from 16:00-19:00. There's wheelchair access - but baby strollers must be left outside. No food or drinks inside the musum! There's a little supermarket (makolet) across the road for stocking up on food and drink after your visit.

Bamba Factory Tour and Visitor Center

Happy tour of factory where all regular (non-filled) Bamba is made. Great for kids, but advance reservation is a MUST (several weeks in advance). All you can eat Bamba, 3D Movie, eat hot Bamba just made in front of you! Ends with a few treats to take home with you. Must be at least 5yrs old.

Reviewed By mash66 - Ra'anana, Israel

Basically this is good for residents of Israel who are looking for ways to keep kids entertained for the long two month summer holidays. A tourist could find plenty of other things to do. The tour starts with a good demonstration of how the famous Israeli snack is made (while kids munch on free Bamba). Then you are taken in to a screening room and given a lab coat and hair covering. You enter the actual factory floor, see the machines making and packing the Bamba. Then there is a short 3D film on the production process. Kids will enjoy the visit although it is short and if you are coming all the way to Holon then plan other things in your day like a visit to the nearby Cartoon Museum. I went to several other factory tours this summer. Tnuva was the worst, Strauss dairy was good and Coca Cola is probably the best. The Strauss chocolate factory in the north is supposed to be great. For 10 shekels the Bamba visit is cheap entertainment for 1 hour but take into consideration the traffic etc and decide if it is worth it. Tip: Park around the corner in the Outlet mall parking - free for two hours.
