“interesting and well made”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

By chance we went to the Hagana museum and were pleasantly surprised. The museum gives a great insight into the years before and during the independence of the state of Israel.

“worth a visit - but in case-”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

you are in a short trip = keep nthis for the next time.
Hagana was the defence force before the IDF and this museum will take you back in the time machine to see how holocaust survivers invented amunition and methods to hide from the British (UK mandate - remember?)

“If you are into guns”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012 via mobile

Absolutely the best collection of weaponry you will find anywhere from side arms to tanks. Also some very interesting displays on the history of the Israeli army. Well worth a couple hours. Then go to the beach, which is right across the street.

“Especailly good for history and military buffs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

I spent far more time here than the average tourist might because I'm both a history and military buff. Be sure not to miss the 20 minute orientation film (in English on request) on the first floor. Some of the exhibits are in need of refurbishing, and the weekday I went the place was nearly deserted. Also on that day none of the English translations of the audio exhibits were operational, but I could see that they were working on the system. I would have given this attraction an "excellent" rating if the English had been working and if the exhibits had been "brushed up" a bit. The English-speaking staff was particularly helpful. Senior discount on admission, and journalists are not only admitted for free, but are also given a guided tour in English on request. Backpacks and large purses and bags must be left on admission.
