This brand-new Museum opened in 2009 in Bialik Square, in what was the old Tel aviv Municipality building. The Museum relays the development of Tel Aviv from it's beginnings as a suburb of the port-city of Jaffa to the buzzing world-famous metropolis and cultural, commercial and fashion centre that it is today, through use of multimedia displays. Photographs, models, a film in English, as well as documents are some of the means used to tell the story of the city's founding and early history.
The Museum of the History of Tel Aviv includes the office of the first mayor of Tel Aviv, Meir Dizengoff which has been fully restored and treats visitors so a stunning view of Bialik Square. Bialik Street, on which the Museum is situated, also has some fantastic examples of Bauhaus and Modernist buildings, the buildings responsible for the "White City" name given to Tel Aviv. The architecture of the Modernist-structure museum itself is highly interesting too.
It is worthwhile noting that the Bauhaus Museum, Bialik Museum and the Rubin Museum are all located on Bialik Street so a visit to these museums can make for a full day out in this part of Tel Aviv.
