It was one of the most casual museums I have ever been to, but that seemed totally appropriate for Tel Aviv. A great low-tech way to tell the story of the founding of Israel in an important historical location. Wish I did it the first time I was there. Not a big time commitment, either.

It is a must when in TLV! Lovely small tour where you do have to cry a bit! A place where it all started!

As you hear the audio of the founding fathers of Israel announce the creation of the State, one can't help compare to the American founders and the absolute joy and excitement of the moment. Its a short visit and will be in renovation shortly, so go while you can.

This is one of the first places I recommend to people visiting Israel, and coming to Tel Aviv. It's inspiring and informative... and will teach you tons in an interactive manner.

excellent way to learn about the history in Israel! I would recommend it to adults. for the children, especially young, it is probably not entertaining and rather boring. other than that, great speakers and story lines.

this was the home of the first mayor of tel aviv and was the site where David Ben Gurion read the proclamation of independence and the formation of the new state. This all occurred within our memories which gives it a sense of life and history which you don't get at similar places in countries with longer histories. There is... More

A great place to start your trip in Israel. Leading how the country started and hearing what went on in 1948 brings the country as a whole together. Hearing the national anthem go Hatikva can only bring tears to the eyes if you are Jewish.

I was not expecting to be so well entertained. The guides were fantastic and the stories so fascinating they even kept the intetest of my two children. I learnt so much in my visit. It's not a large place and only takes a short while to visit but definitely worth it.

I am so glad that we made time for this most informative glimpse into the beginning of the state of Israel. The time there is divided between a short film and a presentation from a guide about the events that led up to that monumental time. We were fortunate to have the most amazing and passionate guide who moved me... More
