"הרצלילינבלום" - מוזיאון לבנקאות ונוסטלגיה תל אביבית
המוזיאון קבע את משכנו באחד מראשוני הבתים של אחוזת בית, בליבה ההיסטורי של תל אביב.
הבית נבנה כבית חד קומתי בשנת 1909 ע"י אולגה ויצחק פרנק.
בשנת 1912 נרכש הבית על ידי חיים שיף. בשנת 1924 הסב שיף את הבית לבניין בן שלש קומות, על פי תכנונם של האדריכל יוסף ברלין והמהנדס ריכרד פסובסקי. במהלך השנים החליף הבניין את ייעודו ושימש כבית מלון, בבנק, כמשרד עורכי דין וכמשכנם של משרדים ובתי מלאכה שונים.
החל משנת 2006 ובמשך שלש שנים, עבר הבית תהליך שימור קפדני.
מעטפת הבית על כל מאפייניה הארכיטקטונים ומרבית חלל הפנים שוחזרו בדייקנות תוך כיבוד טכנולוגיות הבניה המקוריות: הריצוף המקורי של הבית שומר, כמו גם הפרזול, עבודות הנגרות, הרעפים וציורי הקיר.
בשנת 2009, במלאת מאה שנים לבית ולעיר תל אביב, הוסב הבניין על ידי בנק דיסקונט למוזיאון, המציג את התפתחות הכלכלה המסחר והבנקאות לצד התפתחותה של העיר תל אביב.
