Room 3

This room represents the first two decades of the State of Israel.

The room opens with a description of the large waves of aliyah (immigration), the settlement of the olim (new immigrants) throughout the country, the establishment of development towns, the large nationwide companies of the 1950s, and the cultural wealth and diversity. At the same time, the display shows the young Israeli nation’s sense of being under siege following a series of security incidents throughout the period. The room concludes its display on the eve of the Six-Day War by describing the waiting period that preceded the war.
