The First Station (or "Mitcham Hatachana") is a great place for a late afternoon or evening visit. The place was once Jerusalem's train station, back then in the mid-19 century, until in 1998 the people in charge decided to shut the railroad down. The train was too slow and not many people bought a ticket for the train to Jerusalem. Now the train station is no longer a train station, but a site full of restuarants and shops, The place got renovated really nicely- it doesn't look old at all, there are signs on the columns of the station that give you historical facts about the place, a piece of the railway still lays along the station and in the center there is a large wooden plaza where live performances and entertainment is being made each evening.
The last time a was there I attended the Miniature Train Exhibition and it was really nice, but I suppose it'll be over when the month ends. Before you go, I suggest you to look into the First Station's website. They tell you everything you need to know about exhibitions taking place, performances coming up and many other activities. Every Sunday and Monday takes place an artists' fair in the station, so if you like arts and crafts, you should go then and look around the stalls. There are some very talented people showing and selling their stuff.
