The Old Municipal Building, Bialik Square

In our wanderings around Tel Aviv we happened to stumble upon the Old Municipal Building and its new extension. We were pleaseantly surprised. If this was Switzerland we wouldn't look twice. But this is Tel Aviv, where Unesco conservation policy reigns and pastel plaster are considered "uber contemporary". So 1992?
The building is destined to house the Museum of the History of Tel Aviv - Yafo, and is schedualed to open in 10 days. We haven't been inside, but a quick peek through a window revealed some potentially interesting exhibits.
