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.

It's a must see if you are interested in the history of the creation of the IDF and the state of Israel. The staff was very friendly. There were not so many visitors besides soldiers. We had the impression that for them it was a kind of compulsory programme. Everything was translated to English and the film shown at the... More

This is a well planned museum with images, models and films showing the creation of the Hagana and background to Israeli conflicts through the past century. Information is in Hebrew and English and staff on the front desk are very welcoming - remember to bring photo ID.

This is a small, but amazing museum about Hagana and the creation of the State of Israel. Very few people know about the museum, but in my opinion no one visiting Tel-Aviv should miss it. The museum gives the visitor a good picture about the facts and history of Israel. really good.

The Hagana was the major Jewish underground army before the State of Israel, and this museum portrays it's history in an interesting and thorough way. There are three floors of exhibits, each floor detailing different eras for important events and for the development of this underground army. The exhibits are interesting, informative and are explained in both Hebrew and English.... More
