Joseph Bau House Museum

Joseph Bau House Museum is an authentic artist workshop in Tel Aviv where Joseph Bau worked for 40 years and is now a museum.

Rebecca and Joseph Bau are the original couple whose wedding is shown in the movie “Schindler’s List.”

After surviving the Plaszow concentration camp, Bau immigrated to Israel in 1950 with a dream to make animated movies in the Holy Land.

Only after his death it was revealed that he worked in the Mossad as a graphic artist who forged documents for Israeli spies, including Eli Cohen.

Bau was a multidisciplinary artist who worked and created at a small studio since 1960.

He opened a graphics studio in which he designed movie posters, color advertisements, paintings, and graphics.

He also built a small cinema and filming equipment by himself, which he used to make cartoons.

Museum tells the life story of Joseph Bau reflected in his wide range of creativity works.

Here you can see animated movies, the original equipment he built to create them, his paintings, and graphic art, prose, and study of the Hebrew language.


Visits and tours of the Joseph Bau House Museum must be scheduled in advance. See the museum website for contact information
