Independence Hall is just a couple rooms but loaded with history. We saw an excellent presentation on the founding of Israel and the wat that ensued. Worth a visit.

I appreciate all we have seen on our tour after the moving presentation at Independence Hall. Israel is no longer just a dream thanks - in part - to what happened here. Worth a visit.

This was the home of Tel Aviv's first mayor, later converted to an art museum, and in 1948 was the site where leaders of the Jewish settlement in Palestine declared the independence of the State of Israel. A short film is provided. Interesting for a taste and feel for those exciting and challenging times.

For anyone interested in Israeli history, visiting the Independence museum is a must. Here you can stand within a few meters of the place where David Ben Gurion proclaimed the creation of the independent state of Israel. It is one thing to watch videos of the event and read about it, it is quite another to stand at the epicenter of so much history.

You sit in the room where Israel was declared a state. A guide tells you the history of the building, the room, why it was chosen and what exactly went on that day and the days leading up to it. At the end they play a recording of the declaration followed by the schechiyanu prayer and an orchestra playing hatikva., it was very ineresting and very moving
