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.

The museum is located on Rotchild blvd near Allenby, and has 3 levels of well layed out displays from the Haganas ( the forerunner of the IDF) development over almost 30 years from its formation to its disbanding, and if you look carefully you can find small buttons to press for the English version otherwise all the films and displays...

It is practically across the street. If you only do one Museum, I would choose Palmach but this one is still good. A little more intimate than the larger museums. Helps if you can read Hebrew.

We came with two nine year old grandchildren pretty near to closing time. In the end we didnt have to pay as it was free for people from the South...war perk :(. We were sorry we hadnt come earlier-the museum and the staff were outstanding. The place is just the right size-and clean and attractive-make the time to go there... More

While walking around Rothschild Street, one can find this museum concealed behind a road lined massive palm trees; for 15 shekels, one can pass those palms, and find a museum of just-as-massive military history. A trip to the Hagana Museum begins with a brief video that describes the history and importance of what would become the center of the Israel... More

The story of the underground movement in the years before the State was founded is told well with lots of explanation in English. A good visit.
