About the Museum

Tel Aviv-Yafo is a city that marches to the beat of its own drum. Fittingly, its museum is a place where visitors can talk, even out loud. The museum was inaugurated in 2024 in the renewed Bialik Square. It offers an opportunity for anyone interested in learning about the evacuation of the Argazim neighborhood, remembering what party they danced at in the millennium, recalling their whereabouts during the tent demos, or sharing their personal experience of the city. Welcome! visit, see (and perhaps touch) the exhibits, and the Story Collection.
