I think you can’t get a feel for a place or for history without personal stories to tell you how people experience something and this museum does a phenomenal job of telling the story of how people lived and fought for Israel. It was presented...More

This museum highlights the dramatic story of Israeal's fight for independence (well, existence) in the 30s and 40s by focusing on the Palmach, the "strike force" of elite members of the Hagannah, later the IDF. The museum combines artifacts with documentaries mixed with filmed reenactments...More

A great way to learn the history of the formation of Israel through a visual tour of the times. Reservations a must. Only 25 people at a time.

An absolutely stunning and moving spectacle of how a completely outnumbered and ill equipped rag tag army managed to defeat overwhelming and theoretically superior forces.

The visit is a built tour where you receive an explanation and then an audio device, moving from room to room for films and other exhibits. The entire visit is just under 1.5 hours.
