Terrific Museau
Sep 2020
Immersion in an audio--visual experience exploring the history of the Palmach, who fought and sacrificed during the pre-independence and 1947 war struggles.

A very human story behind the quest for freedom, independence and a q homeland

Totally immersive and well done. Do what we did and choose this over the Museum of Art (though I'm sure that is quite good also) if you want to learn more about the country's early beginnings. Call in advance and make a reservation because there are limits to the groups scheduled.

A MUST SEE
Jan 2020
A thoughtful installation which proudly tells an important part of the history.
Israel was immediately emeshed in war as soon as Statehood passed and how they succeeded
against such huge odds is still a wonderment.

Highly recommend, make reservations in advance
Jan 2020
Definitely one of the best museum experiences I have had. I was lucky that I was a single visitor in an off peak time of year. Arrived without a reservation and they were able to squeeze me into a tour later that day. I went next door to the Rabin Center museum while I waiting, which was also very good. The Palmach is a rare museum in that it tells a story using visuals and small group tours. It tells a compelling story and allows you to follow characters through the period in different scenes and years. This was my first time in Tel Aviv and the Palmach was a highlight, I’m so glad I was able to get in.

Powerful Visit

A powerful experience. My husband who has heard these stories so many times felt that this museum made it all come alive for him. In hindsight it was a little much our 9 yr old who had so many challenging questions about the futility of war afterwards. Recommend for children aged 11yrs +

An excellent museum to tour. It is mostly audiovisual and hence not boring for children. Next to it is a library with photos of the Palmach units and the guide who actually was part of one of the units. Please note that Friday it closes at 3 PM

Great museum with up to date video presentation
Nov 2019
We came to the Palmach museum on a tour. It was a great experience. You follow a group of video characters through the museum. They don't pull any punches showing how the war for independence was fought. Definitely worth a visit.

A must see in Tel Aviv!
Nov 2019
The Palmach Museum tells the story...in an extremely active and compelling way...of the Palmach "striking force" during the 1948 War for Independence. It follows a company of Palmach fighters from recruiting, through training, and into the various operations they conducted...operations in which some of them were killed. It is a powerful and moving presentation of the price of freedom, and will help you to understand why it is, even today, every Israeli's duty and responsibility to be training and ready to defend their homeland.
