To hear the prophetic of the bible come true is such a wake up call for some. It was prophesied there would be a nation called Israel and it would become a nation in one day. Go to Independence Hall and see and hear, how Israel became a nation in one day.

The young man who told us about IHM was so very passionate about his subject, his presentation was excellent, I was in tears at the end at the miracle which is the Jewish State of Israel.

I like the location which is surrounded by good coffee shops in Rothschild. It has movie to tell the history of Israel. You can step into the actual hall where Israel's independence was declared.

Just being where the founders of the state declared it was a state was emotional. The young woman guide gave aa wonderful brief explanation of the site.

This tour is very short but allows you to experience a great moment in Israeli history. Sitting in the room where Israeli Independence was declared is inspirational.

Informative little place on the Independence of Israel although it could be argued that it over priced for all that it is.

The Independence Museum in Tel Aviv is a historic relic that is a must-see for anyone interested in the history of the foundation of the modern state of Israel. There is a short, but informative video beforehand, and then guests can enter the room where David Ben-Gurion declared the state of Israel's independence in 1948. There are some nice display...

I cried a lot. We learned about everything that happen that May 14th. All the details, all the stories around, all about the vote in the UN, and at the end we listen the original recording of the declaration of independence by Ben Gurion just in the same place where this happened. Immediately after this, we listened Hatikva. We all... More

I have been to Israel before, walked nearby streets, but somehow missed going into Independence Hall. The docent gives about an hour long informative, emotional speech in the room where the Israel's statehood was declared. The unimpressive room appears just as it was when the document was signed. You do not need to spend a lot of time here, but... More
