The film presents two museums opposite: The Museum of Art, Ein Harod, Israel, which Samuel Bickel (1909-1975) built there in 1948, and The Menil Collection in Houston, Texas, built by Renzo Piano (b. 1937) 1986 . The daylight lead in Bickel's construction was the direct template for Piano, who took it over at the request of Dominique de Menil patroness for its construction.

The shootings of the film TWO MUSEUMS were held in March 2012 in Houston, Texas, and in May 2012 in Ein Harod, Israel.
