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.

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.
