The poor cousin to the Palmach Museum

Worth a visit if your are in the area...but the Palmach Museum in Ramat Aviv does s much better job of telling this story.

Lots of information presented in an interesting captivating manner. You start with watching a video which gave all the necessary context in concise documentary style. They ran the show even though there was only 2 of us. We left with great respect for the Israeli.

First to enter this museum you need to show your passport and your visa. The visit is very interesting even if you know the history of the region and Israel. It worth it. You can buy a ticket for this museum and Hetzel one which is about 20 minutes walking.

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.
