Preservation & Renewal

היכל ההכרזה

This is the historic hall in which the State of Israel was declared. Most of the exhibited items are originals, while others were meticulously reconstructed.
The names of the public figures who attended the ceremony are inscribed on the dignitaries’ stage and on the chairs.

Above the stage hangs a portrait of Herzl flanked by the national flags.
Most of the pictures that were part of the Tel Aviv Museum’s collection on the day of the Declaration of Independence have remained on the walls, among them the artistic works of Ury Lesser, Yosef Yisraelis, Marc Chagall, Mauricio Mauricy  Minkovsky, Minkowsky Boris Schatz and others.

During the tour of the hall the original recording of Ben Gurion’s declaration can be heard.
