Asian and Judaic art meet at the Belz Museum Collections. Ivory horns decorated with intricate designs, colorful and rich, that once adorned the palaces of kings and queens are on display. Puppetry is still not dead and its existence can be felt by the wide array of around 80 old Chinese puppets seen at this museum. Judaic art by some of Israel's famous artists such as Dani Kafri, Nicki Imber and Ofa Friedland have also been put up here.
