History Museum Historic Site
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.
