Reservations are needed for an English speaking tour. The tour is brilliantly creative, like a theater performance. Ideal for families too.

We had a 24 hr layover in Tel Aviv and no idea what to do. The art museum is closed on Sunday. Our hotel concierge very enthusiastically recommended this museum, so off we went with no idea what it was about. One annoying note was...More

When I told Tel Aviv friends that I had reserved a place, they said “Tedious.” I went anyway. They were correct—but I would add that the video that (sort of) tells a story of the Palmach is overwrought and schmaltzy—two members announce their engagement on...More

This museum offered a trip back in time to the battle for Israel and the incredible heroism exhibited by all who fought for her independence.

One of the treats of Israel is their creativity and quality of how they create a memorable experience such as a museum. Rather then just static and boring displays, this place had it more experiential and it was great as a result.

Very interactive, delineates the history of the Palmach. It personalizes the experience by connecting the participant with a group of young Palmach fighters and following them through their military experience in the War of Independence. Highly recommended

Our first time at the Palmach museum. Definitely worth a visit- you move from room to room and really experience what it was like to be part of the Palmach during Israel's formative years. Excellent guide. Highly recommend- need reservations for English tour.

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.
