“Fascinating and moving”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

An experiential look at the Palmach's history and role in Israeli independence. In the photo library we met an 85-year-old veteran of the 1948 war who brought Israel's heroic character home.

“Palmach Museum, Israel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

Do not miss this wonderful museum which provides an interactive experience of the Palmach. You become part of the Palmach, and feel as if you are there with them: planning, involved, and emotionally a part of this group of brave young men and women. this is very different from the type of museums we are used to.

“Very absorbing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

Not really a museum in the traditional sense. Tells the story of the Palmach through a multi-media movie. Worth seeing.

“Make a reservation for a tour in English”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

On a recent visit I was not allowed in because I had not made an advance reservation for an English tour. You must tour with one of their guides, apparently. Next time I will know better. Also, be advised that this museum closes at 3 PM.
