Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This place is amazing for any military or armor buff; it's got so many tanks (and APC's) that they're literally parked all over the place. I would give it a solid 2 hours if you want to have a look at all the tanks, but allot at least that. They have more WW II tanks than you'd have guessed, modern tanks that were donated, and so on. Lots of one-off, improvised vehicles as well.

We took a cab here and back from Jerusalem, which cost us about $35 each way, but totally worth it. there's a little room with tank models and a modest gift shop that could use an upgrade, but still nice.

It is a MUST visit for all, regardless of whether you served in the Armored Corps. For our family - it is an integral part of this country history.
Have visited the site ~30 years ago. There were a few tanks in very poor condition.
It has been a very pleasant surprise to see how well the site is maintained. The variety of the tanks that served in battles both in Israel and in wars all over the world is impressive. Family stories blend directly into our country history.
The video is impressive.

Love this museum . But I'm a Tank buff.
About a hundred tanks of all kinds , Israeli , American Russian French British etc . From WW2 and up . Also Combat Engineer stuff.
They are outside .
In the center is the Latrun fort , a Taggert fort , built by the British after 1922. It was used as a police station and then a Jordanian Fort till captured by the Israelis in 1967. Not much to see inside . Used mostly as classrooms for visiting groups .
A gift shop has Tank Stuff,,models ,books Israeli army stuff
Again , I love tanks .

We went to play laser tag at Latrun. This place is sooo cool and VERY highly recommended for all ages 7-70.

We went with 7 people ranging in age from 7-42. Everyone had a blast. Originally we thought that we wanted to have our own game just us. However, we ended up joining another group of all Israeli young adults, who all served in the Israeli army. We were 14 altogether and we had an absolute blast.

This is not a typical Laser Tag. You are equipped with a vest and hat each having targets to shoot at. The coolest part is you are given what a laser gun that looks and works (cocking and all) like a really fun used in the army. This place is set on an Army base museum with 100 tanks. It is really cool and tons of fun.

Even if you were not thinking of doing this, add it to your itinerary. I promise, you will not be let down.

The IDF army day program.

Upon arriving at Latrun the participants will receive their uniform and weapon (we can provide printed shirts with our emblem and name of group/family) then taken on the guided tour with an active duty soldier, at the end of the tour the participants will be taken to the laser tag field where they will learn some of the basics that soldiers get greeted with upon joining the army.
Teamwork, leadership, discipline. They will then be trained in how the IDF special forces takes firing positions: Standing, kneeling and laying with dummy rifles.
They will also be thought some elements of krav maga like how to defend against a knife wielding attacker, the participants will get to practice with dummy knifes.
Handling this program is a former commander within the Israeli counter terror unit (LOTAR) that has trained the IDF elites.
After learning the basics of being a soldier the participants will receive the most advanced laser tag equipment in Israel used in training our armed forces and they will be ready for battle.
Throughout an hour and half the participants will play through scenarios built to create the same kind of teamwork and leadership seen in the IDF like "protect the leader", "search and retrieve".
After all this the participants will be awarded with a certificate for completing the program.

Great place to see tanks that were actually used in Israeli wars. Information about the tanks is posted, and many you can climb on.
Good place to learn military history, and entertaining still for children who aren’t interested yet.
It’s mostly all outside so be prepared for weather.

The museum contains tanks and armored vehicles from Israel's entire modern history. Latrun was strategically of critical importance to the State of Israel and everyone should visit and learn the history if they don't already know it.

I have lived in Israel for a few years and had never been to the War Museum in Latrun. I spent a lovely afternoon with my partner and we did enjoy the museum, although we remarked to each other that if you don't know the history of the wars in Israel it might be a bit boring but we found it interesting. The observational deck on top of the building offers stunning views of the surrounding area and the museum inside is pretty informational. The tanks outside, if you take a moment to read about each one, are pretty interesting as well, though the general feeling of man's inhumanity to man does make one want to go to the nearby Latrun winery and have a big glass of wine!

Visited with a tour (3 coaches) visiting historical sites in Jordan and Israel. Before we went I wondered 'why there?' However found it was more than a tank museum showing all the types of tank and armoured vehicles used by the Israeli Army up to the present day, it was also a memorial to the 5,000 or so 'Tankies' that had lost their lives since the Tank Corps was set up in 1948. The guides were excellent and spoke perfect English. Went into the old British built fortifications for a film. However, it was a promotional film for the modern Israeli Army Tank Corps rather than Historical clips showing the Corps in action which would have been more appropriate.
