Beit Ha'ir History Museum
Feb. 2020 • Couples
The building is very interesting in itself. The top floor was about Tel Aviv but with a strong emphasis on the first Mayor of the city. I did spend a great amount of time on the zoo animal poster which was geared more for kids and occupied a large square footage of the building.

Beit Ha'ir , one of Tel-Aviv's hidden gems
Jan. 2020
Beit Ha'ir is located in Bialik street , not far from the Northern end of Allenby street , Tel-Aviv .The building itself is just under 100 years old , and has a rich history , which is available for viewers on the internet .
I visited on the recommendation of one of my children, who had been on a school trip there , and actually stayed longer than I had originally intended .
The building when I visited , had an exhibition dedicated to the early Tel-Aviv Zoo ( these days , there is a safari located just North of Tel-Aviv in Ramat Gan ) .
I was told by the guide that the exhibition changes during the year , so if you want to see the zoo exhibition , now is the time !!.
As you can see from my pictures the ( zoo) exhibit covers a large part of the building , along with a reconstruction of the office of Tel-Aviv's first mayor Meir Dizengoff ( not to be missed !! ), and archive pictures etc of early Tel-Aviv in the basement floor .
For those who wish to see a timeline presentation ( movie + slides ) of Tel-Aviv , there is a showing on the ground floor .

There was no guide book that I could purchase ,which was a pity , because there are LOTS of reflections from the wall mounted exhibits , which can make photography " challenging"

One last thing , VERY IMPORTANT - Beit Ha'ir will be closed during July and August for renovations

Nice with a guide
Feb. 2018 • Family
We had a nice and short visit this afternoon. It is important to have a tour guide as the history and architecture of the place is interesting, otherwise you will be in and out in 5 minutes.

This Museum traces the history of the City of Tel Aviv from when the first Jews arrived (66 Families) on 11-April-1909. It is housed in the Old City Hall. Many Photographs of Tel Aviv of yore. Worth a visit!
