Fascinating, well-structured and excellently produced audio-visual history of the Palmach, the underground army of the Jewish community during the British Mandate period. The guide takes you through an 'underground' historical review of the formation and exploits of the fighting force of the Haganah. Well-done and...More

Reservations are needed for an English speaking tour. The tour is brilliantly creative, like a theater performance. Ideal for families too.

When I told Tel Aviv friends that I had reserved a place, they said “Tedious.” I went anyway. They were correct—but I would add that the video that (sort of) tells a story of the Palmach is overwrought and schmaltzy—two members announce their engagement on...More

The visit is a built tour where you receive an explanation and then an audio device, moving from room to room for films and other exhibits. The entire visit is just under 1.5 hours.

What do you mean by the route? It is a fully guided tour.

Extra Day in Tel Aviv (14 Replies)
In June, we (family with teens) are going to Israel with a 12 day bar mitzvah tour (all settled). The tour ends in Tel Aviv on a Thursday night, but we are electing to stay one extra day/night at the end of the trip. We will have seen Independence Hall, Museum of Diaspora, Ayalon Institute and Old Jaffa with the tour. What should we do on friday? I was looking at the Palmach museum, Carmel Market and Nachalat Binyamin, and the beach. Is Palmach too similar to Ayalon? should we do something...More

I think the Palmach Museum is an excellent choice -- book ahead. And maybe some beach time? What kind of food do your teens like? Douglas Duckett

How can I get from my hotel to the Palmach museum? (15 Replies)
How can I get from my hotel to the Palmach museum using public transportation? My hotel is this one: https://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g29… Can I pay my bus ticket to the driver? Do I have to have the exact change? Any other thing I should know? Thanks

Response fromrdglady|
Your hotel also should be able to help. Someone will tell you the bus to road 2. From there you take a bus to the Eretz Yisrael Museum and walk up past it to the Palmach. You do not need exact change and you can pay the driver. BTW, it would be easier for everyone if you wrote the name of the hotel, instead of providing links. ( google maps also gives diirections)
