One of the first buildings erected in Tel Aviv, Independence Hall Museum provided the setting for the signing of Israel's declaration of independence. Once the home of the city's first mayor, the building now serves as a memorial and museum to the historic signing event. Uncover the early days of Tel Aviv's history through a series of displays, leading to the Declaration Hall, where the State of Israel was officially declared in May of 1948. Recreated with artifacts and reconstructed articles, the hall exists exactly as it was during that pivotal moment, the voice of founding father David Ben-Gurion echoing through the space from an original recording. Tours are available in English. Plan your visit to Independence Hall Museum and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Tel Aviv vacation builder.

  • Independence Hall is a no-frills memorial to the place where Israel declared independence. Not fancy but very authentic. 
  • well worth the trip to independence hall; extremely informative and helpful; gives you a real sense on what happened on independence day 
  • If you're visiting with a wheelchair, flag down someone at the reception desk and they will open the back gate that leads you into the independence hall. Even though you will miss the video presentation one of the staff will do a quick overview for you. Worth a quick stop!
  • A very important part of Israel's history that has been kept well looked after. A great A/V presentation begins the tour, followed by a nice explanation and demonstration of the declaration in the actual room that it occurred.
  • sadly, most people don't recognize this historical landmark. definitely worth a visit. just take your head off your phones people!
  • "Beit Ha'Azmaut" was one of the first buildings in Tel Aviv, known as the house of the first mayor of Tel Aviv, Meir Dizengoff and his wife Zina, later becoming the Tel Aviv museum while Dizengoff remained living on the upper floor till his death in 1936. Little did he know that his house will host the most important event for modern time Jews, the declaration of the Jewish Democratic state.
  • This place is where Israel was declared. Everything looks very well kept, and the guides give interesting points about the declaration and the time it was made.
