Nestled atop a hill in Ramat Aviv with a stunning view of the city of Tel Aviv (see the photo below), the Yitzhak Rabin Center holds a wealth of information about the culture, history, and birth of Israel. Open now for three years, the Center was created with the idea to share Rabinʼs life within the greater scope of sharing the life of Israel.
From gorgeous photographs of his personal life – as well as his professional life – adorning the corridors, to emotional and historical photos throughout the historic years of Israel, the atmosphere is visually stunning. Panels throughout the building are ﬁlled with stories from his life and even personal belongings, which not only show his strengths, but also his weaknesses.
What makes the Rabin Center unique is the integration of Israeli and world-wide events throughout the entire tour. On the ﬂoor of each section, a world-timeline of pictures display what was happening of importance simultaneously around the globe. Dilemma Panels represent all the issues and problems Israel faced throughout the years. From social protests in the 70s to the ever present Israeli-Palestinian conﬂict, no topic goes unnoticed.
There are 188 short documentary ﬁlms places strategically throughout the Center as well as powerful and emotional war movies and Rabinʼs last days.
To say this is just another museum would be a complete understatement of the truth, and like Yad Vashem in Jerusalem, it is an experience in itself.
Guided tours by professional and extremely knowledgeable guides can be completed in Hebrew, English, and Russian, and personal headsets include other languages such as French, Arabic, and Spanish.
We rank the Yitzhak Rabin Center as a Must See, whether you are a tourist just visiting Israel and wanting to soak up the history and culture of the country, or if you are a citizen and need to brush up on your knowledge of Israel.
