Room 1

The visit to the Israeli Museum starts in a round space simulating the Kings of Israel Square on November 4, 1995, the night of the assassination of the Prime Minister and Defense Minister, Yitzhak Rabin.

Visitors are invited to enter the square, whether as supporters of the rally that took place that same evening or as opponents. Upon exiting the square, the visitors arrive at the beginning of a descending spiral route that portrays the life of Yitzhak Rabin. This route opens along its entire length to large display rooms, presenting the saga of the State of Israel and Israeli society.

Within the rooms, there are two secondary axes:

One displays the conflicts and disputes that have divided Israeli society since its inception. This axis is shown in red steel triangles, breaking through the museum’s walls.

A second axis is a global timeline, noting prominent events that occurred worldwide, parallel to local events. This axis is situated on the floor of the museum.
