We learned so much while here, although we had to move through quickly; as we were on a tour. So much that I had no idea of before and it was all presented in a very interesting and easy to absorb way!

I have been to Israel many times, and am well-versed in Israeli history. So--I was surprised at how much I learned at this well-done, thorough museum. It details the entire history of Jewish self-defense in Ottoman, British Mandate and early statehood eras, and makes clear the evolution of primitive guard patrols to the modern Israeli Army, in all its various...

Watching the introductory film was highly worthwhile, and put a lot of the subsequent exhibits in perspective.

This was very interesting for anyone who is curious about Israel's history of defending itself and the birth of the IDF. Fascinating details about their relationship with the British, etc. Well done museum.

This small museum is situated in a heritage building on lovely Rothschild Boulevard. It is accessible and full of interesting exhibits. Definitely worth the time if you are interested in the history of the modern state of Israel. The exhibits are well laid out and full of information, diaries, maps, photos, videos, etc. I visited with a group of English... More

The history was well layed out with enough description to keep you informed and focused. It was contained enough to keep your interest and present the story of Israel's struggles and success in a balanced but proud approach.

You can take a sharut for little money to Rothschild Boulevard, and then go down the street to the Museum. It doesn't cost much to get in and you spend as little as an hour to two hours in this wonderful history of Israel through the eyes of the Hagana. it is a must see.

If you see this museum after the IDF Museum or Etzel Museum it is a little less dramatic but they have some good artifacts, dioramas and movies on the war for Israeli Independence. Make sure you follow the directions or you may miss some very interesting displays. This probably deserves an average + review.

From Hagana Museum you receive the best general idea of former IDF. Every exhibition, every board in the museum worths reading. And especially the short documentary at the beginning.
