(600+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • A bit patriotic but nevertheless very educative. You are able to enter the actual hall that looks still the same as when the independence was declared. Interesting stories on video and by the guide.  more »

  • I was little bit sceptical before to go there. But we have excellent guide. It is small place but it will give you a lot of information to understand history. All your is for 20 minutes.
  • The guided tour takes you easily back in time!
  • A piece of Jewish history in the heart of Tel-Aviv.
  • Home of first PM of Israel. Very old. They are supposed to close it at the end of 2017 to renovate & reopen in 2018.
  • Great historical place. A must for historians.
