“Living History”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

A fantastic start to a tour of Israel with an explanation and historical discourse of the history of the Jewish State of Israel explained by a local guide. No tour of Israel is complete without a visit to Independence Hall.

“Inspiring historic site”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Always inspired to be in the place where David Ben Gurion declared statehood for Israel in 1948. Great movie as introduction to sitting in actual hall.

“History come to life”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

This is where the Israeli independence declaration was signed--and where the state of Israel started. It is filled with history. The recording, though not high-tech, was actually suspenseful and exciting--one of those " you were there" experiences.

“Listen Carefully - Wonderful, meaningful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

Maybe the best one hour presentation we have ever had. The actual presentation is moving and informative. A great way to start a tour of Israel ... Tel Aviv or Jaffa.

“A nice surprise!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

I was not looking forward to this tour. The house is very simple, as it was the first in Tel Aviv. The tour is led by a young person, who really made the story of Israel's independence come alive. It turned out to be a great tour, and very interesting for both kids and adults.
