Interesting for all ages, with media explanations and state of the art displays. Don't miss it but be sure to reserve places in advance.

The museum is in the form of a story told, not the usual format. The Palmach was the precursor to the Israel Defense Force (army), and was instrumental in fighting for independence against both the British, the Arab population and the surrounding armies of Egypt, Jordon, Syria, Lebanon, and Iraq,
