The Carmel Market & Nachalat Binyamin

The Carmel Market, situated in the southern part of Tel Aviv, adjacent to the historic Yemenite Quarter, is the largest outdoor market in the city and a magnet for locals and tourists alike.

Open Sunday through Thursday from morning till evening and through the early noon hours on Friday, it comprises countless stalls and shops, standing “shoulder to shoulder,” selling - and hawking more often than not - just every imaginable type of food, from an abundance of fresh fruits and vegetables to cheeses, appetizers, pastries, nuts and dried fruits, fish, meat and ethnic specialties. Inexpensive items of clothing are also available in the market, as are tobacco products, souvenirs, and much more.

A large variety of street food stalls, restaurants, cafés, and bars has become part of the Carmel Market scene in recent years, transforming it – and especially the streets on its outskirts – into one of Tel Aviv’s newest recreation areas. Located adjacent to the Carmel Market, the arts and crafts fair along the Nachalat Binyamin Street pedestrian mall, open Tuesdays and Fridays throughout most of the day, the Nachalat Binyamin Arts & Crafts Fair.is one of Tel Aviv’s most colorful tourism venues, Along a long stretch of street dotted with cafés and containing a large number of buildings marked for preservation, in styles reminiscent of Tel Aviv’s architectural past, local artists and artisans vetted by a professional committee display handicrafts, designer objects and works of art, accompanied from time to time by live music and street performances of various kinds.

Jaffa Port

Jaffa Port, which can be accessed by foot via the Old City of Jaffa, or the Tel Aviv Seaside Promenade, or directly by car, bestows on Jaffa a historical status as a Western gateway to the Land of Israel. An active fishing port and one of the oldest ports in the world, in operation since the Canaanite period, it is mentioned in the Old Testament Book of Jonah and welcomed Richard the Lionheart and Napoleon Bonaparte to cite but two figures of historical note. For thousands of years, the port has served fishermen, ships, merchants, pilgrims, conquerors and immigrants.
Having been gentrified in recent years with restored fishing piers and renovated warehouses, the port serves nowadays as a yacht marina, as well as a venue for dining and recreation  - a point of departure for pleasure cruises, fishing expeditions and Segway tours, and a  compound hosting art workshops and galleries, a VR  compound, musical performances, restaurant, cafés, a theater starring vision-impaired artists, and more. 
Along with serving as a location for its day-to-day commercial tenants, the port hosts a variety of musical, cultural and other activities and events for children as well as adults.

Hatachana

Located in the area of the city separating Jaffa from Tel Aviv, between the Neve Tzedek district and the Mediterranean Sea, Hatachana (Hebrew for “the Station”) is one of Tel Aviv’s finest centers for fun and entertainment, fashion and culture. 
A railway station from which travelers would set off for Jerusalem, and a crossroads for local commerce until it closed down and was left derelict, the site on which Hatachana is situated was hidden from sight for a long time, before undergoing a unique process of comprehensive refurbishment a number of year ago, when.22 of its buildings were renovated and preserved by a team of architects, engineers, and expert contractors that took pains to maintain the historical and architectural value of the compound so that visitors would be left with a sense of its historical authenticity. The building housing the passenger terminal itself, where tickets were sold and from which the trains would depart, is among those that have remained intact, along with that of the Vilner Family, members of the local Templar community, and the family’s building supplies and floor tile factory, some constructed by the British Army, which was based there prior to 1948, and others as well. 
Featuring on-site commercial enterprises and one-off initiatives for special activities and events that take place there, Hatachana offers visitors a wide variety of opportunities for shopping, entertainment and fun. It is a unique blend of history, commerce and culture, a cultural compass enabling every visitor to feel comfortable and to find the please he or she likes. 
Visitors may enjoy special musical events, art fairs and temporary exhibitions in the on-site gallery. Trend-setting fashion events also take place from time to time, as do children’s and sports activities
The space is shared by many commercial enterprises - fashion and jewelry shops and boutiques, alongside others dealing with home décor, which stock products by Israel’s finest fashion designers.

Beit Hatfutsot – The Museum of the Jewish People

Beit Hatfutsot – The Museum of the Jewish People, located on the Tel Aviv University campus, presents the unique and ongoing story of the Jewish People and brings to life its rich and multifaceted culture, past and present, in Israel and around the world. It features four galleries, two each for permanent and temporary exhibitions – with more to come. "Halleluja," a permanent exhibition in The Alfred H. Moses and Family Synagogue Hall, displays 21 synagogue models, offering glimpses into the individual functions of each, from weddings and Bar/Bat Mitzvah ceremonies to daily prayer and charity.

The experience is enriched by the introduction of interactive stations, including one where visitors can design and building their own synagogue, along with videos that capture ceremonies from 24 synagogues, a diversity of prayers and also Jewish traditions. "Heroes – Trailblazers of the Jewish People," the second permanent show, mounted in The Tamar and Milton Maltz Family Gallery, is geared towards adults and children alike and showcases nearly 150 influential historical Jewish figures in all fields and areas of endeavor, by means of interactive stations and animated videos. The purpose of this exhibition is to encourage visitors to rethink their conception and interpretation of what a hero is. Audio guides are available in a range of languages as are guided tours, private tours (minimum of 15 participants) and the free museum app featuring audio guide, videos, images and commentaries. Works on phase two of the Beit Hatfutsot project is scheduled to be completed in the near future.

This area will feature 3500m² of permanent exhibition, with plans calling for visitors to begin their experience on the third floor – where the focus will be on insights into Jewish life from around the world as it is today. The second floor will be devoted to an in-depth historical depiction of Judaism and its ongoing evolvement over the years throughout the world, while the first-floor exhibition will examine Judaism from a universal perspective, as well as Jewish rituals from ancient time to their present forms.

Beit Ha'atzmaut

Beit Ha'atzmaut

On 14th May 1948, the Tel Aviv Museum, formerly the home of Tel Aviv’s legendary Mayor Meir Dizengoff, was chosen to host the ceremony of the declaration of Israel's independence. The site, known now as Independence Hall (Beit Ha'atzmaut), serves as a museum dedicated to the history of that declaration. A tour of Independence hall is divided into two parts - the first, highlighted by a 15-minute movie on the founding of Tel Aviv and Dizengoff's work, and the second a talk on Declaration Hall and what transpired there. The furniture, head table with the names of the dignitaries and even the pictures on the wall have remained as they were then, or have been reproduced, and the guide relates the events of those days against this background, taking his listeners back in time to the suspense surrounding the peak moment of Zionism. The presentation ends with the original, moving recording of the Declaration, spoken by Ben Gurion, himself, Israel’s main founding father and the country’s first Prime Minister.
Guided tours of the site are available in various languages, when booked in advance.
