If you want to learn how the State of Israel was founded and want the sentimentality of being in the actual room where Ben Gurion declared the State, this is the place to be! The guides were excellent and easy to understand. It's worth going to.

The tour guide didn't just tell you the history, she recreated the signing of the Independence so brilliantly, we felt we were actually there. I was very moved. Don't miss this!

I visited the Independence Hall Museum with a class trip to Tel Aviv and enjoyed getting a better understanding of the nation's formation and history. Understanding the long journey to independence for the Israeli people gave me greater context for my conversations with locals and a enriched my visit overall.

A must for any traveler. Transports the visitor back to Independence Day and a fuller understanding of history at that moment.

So exciting .............. you can easily imagine being there in 1948 when the State of Israel was so proudly established in that room.

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.

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.
