    Even though this is not the real location, it is still a great place to learn about the events leading up to the Declaration of the State of Israel. The movie is very informative, all the pictures on the walls are really educational and the bonus is the rest of the historical information in the building. The models of Tel Aviv are so interesting.

    I am interested in the history of Israel and particularly the early years of the state, but even if that's "not your thing" this is a fascinating place for a taster of how Israel came into being. The Haganah Museum tells of the Jewish residents and how they developed a system of defence - the organisation which evolved into the Haganah (Hebrew for "defence") and which subsequently became the Israel Defence Force.

    The exhibition includes a display of recruitment posters on the ground floor and then a series of tableaus, photos and displays on the other floors. I found the models especially appealing and a lot of work has gone into creating them. At one point, you actually walk under a model of a watch-tower used in the "Tower and Stockade" settlements. There are also items of memorabilia from the time and for British visitors one of the most intriguing was the display on Orde Wingate.

    The captions are in Hebrew and English. In the foyer, are books for sale though most of these are in Hebrew. The day I went there was a lovely lady on the reception desk who let me have a lot of information and leaflets on the museum, as well as a book to explain the history to children.

    I would recommend at least 1-2 hours here and possibly more if you have a good knowledge of Hebrew.

    Located at the beginning of Shabazi Street in the old Neve Tzedek neighborhood and near the Tel Aviv Beach, is the renovated 1892 Old Train Station which connected Jaffa to Jerusalem. Nicely renovated, the station and surrounding buildings now features restaurants, art galleries and boutiques.

    I saw a sign while shopping in Neve Tzedek, pointing to the Gutman. I then looked online and saw positive reviews for the museum so I stopped by. Really nice space, and if you like Jaffa, there are some great paintings of old Jaffa. The museum is small, so one needs no more than hour to see everything. There's also a nice gift shop. Generally requires an entry (reasonable) but was free on the day I went.

    I stopped by the Great Synagogue in Tel Aviv with some friends while we were walking around town. The synagogue was completed in 1926 and renovated in 1970. The synagogue is only used by a few congregants today. When you walk up, they'll ask you to pay 10 shekels to enter. I didn't mind this as it was immediately clear upon entering that the synagogue needs a lot of renovation. However, it was interesting to walk around - very different architecture than I'm used to seeing at synagogues. Worth stopping in for a minute if you're in the area.

    This is a pretty horrible looking building that replaced a beautiful 19th century school the demolition of which caused an outcry and was directly responsible for the conservation rules that saved numerous buildings in Tel Aviv from the same fate.

    It’s the best yoga studio you will ever find in Tel Aviv, the classes are the best specially with Brielle, Liat and Victoria, their energy is amazing, you can notice how much they enjoy and love teaching yoga, it’s son natural for them.

    We visit the Neve Tzedek area a lot, but until recently had never entered nor indeed paid particular attention to this fascinating museum detailing a little-known but unique community: the Jews of Aden, a former British Protectorate port now located in Yemen, separated only by a narrow gulf from the Horn of Africa.

    The Jews of Aden have numerous similarities to Yemenite Jews as a whole (a community about which it's possible to learn a lot in Neve Tzedek and also in the nearby district of Kerem HaTeimanim) but are distinctly influenced by the importance the British attached to the Protectorate as a bustling entrepot, and as such mingled with British, Indian, and Iraqi Jews, among others. For instance, as we learned, while it is more common in Israel to eat the starchy dough jachnun as a savoury dish, alongside a rich tomato sauce and spicy condiments, in Aden 'gachnun' (according to the local dialect) was typically eaten with jam, as a sweet dish which might even accompany afternoon tea.

    The museum houses a broad range of artefacts, photographs and documents relating to Aden Jews, from the community's origins to its later settlement in Israel and in the UK. There is also a range of books to browse through or buy which help the visitor enrich their knowledge. Our visit was really made special by staff member Sarah, who took time to explain to us numerous nuances and additional facts that placed the community in its historical context. It's also possible to book tours in advance if you're coming with a large group. You can pop in for ten minutes just to get a feel while you're on your way to one of the neighborhood's other sides, or stay for up to an hour to fully immerse yourself in the exhibits and books and even climb the stairs to the grand synagogue hall.

    This memorial is easily missed if like me you are concentrating on dodging electric scooters and bikes. The story of the founding of TV is very interesting and I would suggest the free tour on a Thursday morning at 10am from the information kiosk opposite 11 Rothschild Blvd.

    Unfortunately the gallery closed. We went a little out of our way to walk to it and were disappointed to learn it was no longer open only after we arrived.

    I came to this store in Tel Aviv well prepared to purchase a beautiful hand made menorah made of bronze that the store keeper had talked about. She was very generous in price and educated me in Israeli art history with items that are both antique and contemporary. Wonderful experience!
