After seeing the Independence Hall, it is estimated that you will have a three-dimensional understanding of that chaotic era. Later, Israel used history as a mirror to establish the most unique military service system in the world. For example, adult men have to perform military service for three years, and there are three more times between the ages of 18 and 60, each of which is half a year of military service.

This building is one of the oldest buildings in Tel Aviv, built in 1909. On May 14, 1948, the day before the expiry of the British trusteeship in Palestine, members of the Jewish Provisional State Council gathered here and announced the establishment of the State of Israel. The building here was opened to the public as an Independence Memorial in 1978.
The very building of Tel Aviv (not Jerusalem) where the State of Israel (מדינת ישראל) was declared a nation on Friday, May 14, 1948, by first Prime Minister, David Ben Gurion, as also witnessed by Meir Dizengoff, the first mayor of Tel Aviv. Beforehand and dating back from the 19th century, Austro-Hungarian Theodor Herzl (the Father of Modern Zionism) visited the land that was Palestine and inhabited by the Arabs and he began to envision there as a State for the Jewish people. Although Herzl passed away in 1905, his dream of the Jewish State has been fulfilled posthumously.Behind where Ben Gurion declared Israel independent on the mic was a photo of Herzl in the latter's honor
This place was really cool, but I am not a huge history kid. I definitely learned a lot about the history of Israel and Tel Aviv, but it was a little boring because it was all listening, not really anything hands-on. If you are looking for an educational, short historical visit, I think this is an importance place to go because you are there for maybe an hour. The people who work there give a nice, brief presentation on the history of the building and a timeline of important events that happened and people who played a role. Overall, I would not go for fun, but if you are with a group looking to explore and learn about Tel Aviv, then it's worth the quick stop.
This is perhaps one of the most iconic buildings that Israel has. There the State of Israel was declared on May 14, 1948. If you want to know the history, obviously, the version of the Israelis, this is the right place. To my liking, although it is good that this is the case for them, it is very segmented and they have a very biased look to one side, ignoring and almost making Palestine and its people disappear from history. As if it had never existed. With this I do not want to minimize the size and importance of this building. I just didn't like how they told the story.
