Rishon LeZion Museum

Museum in Rishon LeZion

The quaint historic museum is housed in a collection of period buildings that lend insight into the pioneer spirit that drove the early Zionist immigrants (who arrived in 1882) and the obstacles they faced. The buildings include the old clinic, stable, water well and a basement where Naftali Herz Imber penned the national anthem, 'HaTikva' (meaning 'The Hope').
