... visit in the same time with the Independence Hall. The story of the Haganah is very well explained and the exposition is interesting. I enjoyed this stay. Thanks also to the young people at the reception for the explanations.

Take the time to watch the movie....Important perspective and history. The museum has a nice flow and many interesting facts about the history of Israel's 'comeback'.
