I was pleasantly surprised that not only were the explanations in english, but that some of the video material was as well. This is a nationalistic museum so don't expect to see anything more than the struggle that Israel experienced in establishing it's state. However,...More

This was a really interesting visit related to the early history of Palestine around the period of WW1 and WW2. This museum tells the story of the Haganah, a paramilitary organisation that existed during the time of the British Mandate in Palestine. It tells the...More

Not done is one before. Well laid out. Some of the information is in Hebrew, but there is a film fist (we didn't have time to see it). Will probably go back again.

This museum features easily digestible, short displays which walk you through the history of the eventual establishment of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) starting from its earliest years, when it started to feature self-defense as a part of the pioneering experience. One starts at the...More

This fabulous museum takes the visitor on a comprehensive, interactive tour of the creation of the IDF. The English speaking visitor will find nearly every display translated (including the videos). Visitors trace the steps of the early efforts to protect the Yishuv to the Palmach...More

Tel Aviv's newer Palmach Museum gets much attention these days (deservedly so), but we found the Hagannah Museum to be even more informative, covering a larger picture of pre-State Israel's efforts to protect Jewish residents from Arab and British hostility, play a role in Germany's...More

This as an interesting museum dedicated to the Hagana fighters. First there's a video and then you are left to tour the exhibition at your own speed. It's very low key and good for a 1- 1.5 hour visit.
