We had a meeting in the area and walked by and decided for a spontaneous visit. There were two groups of soldiers but otherwise empty (during November). Three floors, with elevator if needed. 20NIS a person includes free handheld audio guide you punch in a number on display and get an explanation. There seems to be a movie that has some clips along the way and then the larger A/V finale in a widescreen hall. To turn on the movie, there are switches for Hebrew and English just to the left and up the side of the door. 'old school' type of museum so no expectations of LED screens or vivid colours.

We went to the Hagana Museum with our young grandchildren. It was a well done museum and we enjoyed the presentation and layout of the museum. Gave a good perspective of the Hagana at that time period. The grandkids said they liked it, but I think it was not the best activity for very young kids.

This building hardly looks like a museum as it was originally a house at the front where the forerunner of the IDF was founded. The museum tells the story of the foundation of the force to defend the Jews from its very inception until it was transferred into the IDF during the War of Independence. There is an audio guide in English as well as a large amount of English narrative. The exhibition continues in strict chronological order over 3 floors and takes a good hour to see. I found it very interesting and informative in particular the perspective of the need for a Jewish defence force during the creation of the modern State of Israel and the safeguarding of immigrant Jews from around the world against the will of the British.

of the pre 1948 area of Israel. It explain and illustrate nicely the establishment of the Hagana, and the cooperation with other defence fractions in the time of the British mandate. It shows the challenge the Jews met when they arrived at a he beaches and was deported to Cyprus or back to Germany. This was a defence organization/cooperation that established the safety of the people and the establishment of the state of Israel.
