The house was originally constructed in 1914 and has been preserved to reflect the typical Tel Aviv lifestyle of the time. Observe numerous original artifacts such as photos, weapons, testimonials, and accounts documenting the struggle in creating the state of Israel. You'll be able to learn about revolts, wars, and how the military evolved into an officially recognized state defense force.
