Great experience,gave us a chance to relive the history of our small and very courageous people. Felt as if re-reading "Mitla pass" and many other great novels by L.Uris and H.Wouk.Very revealing and educational, especially for younger people.

As many people here have advised, the English audio tour is very helpful. I would have given this 5 stars if they had not declined our request for audio tours because it was too late in the afternoon. Much of the outdoor displays are on...More

I highly advise to take an audioguide with you - if not, you'll loose like 80% of the information and insteresting stories it is offering to the listeners - plus, many signs near the items are only in Hebrew. It has lots of military vehicles,...More
