Summary

The Hagana Museum presents the history of the Hagana organization in the Jewish settlement in the Land of Israel, during the British mandate.

General

The construction of the museum began in 1913 and was completed in 1914. The museum has three floors, which include an auditorium and an archive. In addition, there are two rooms that were preserved from that time. The rooms demonstrate the lifestyle of that period of time in Tel Aviv. The house itself is considered a unique piece of architecture with stone carpets and decorated walls and floors. The house used to belong to Eliyahu Golomb, a well known commander of the Hagana. One may therefore see a collection of weapons, photos and documents of the Hahagana. In 1961, the ownership of the museum was given to the museums unit of the Ministry of Defense. Later, the building was declared by the structure preservation committee as a preserved structure.
