(Note: Reservation is needed before visit and only group reservation is accepted. I was “lucky” that there was a group visiting at the same time I was there and I was allowed to join them) It’s an experience museum. I was brought through the journey of a group dedicated young people and saw the founding of Palmakh, the thrill of... More

Great museum of Israel's early history. If you like history, this is a must as it walks you through the struggles of Pre-State Israel and the communitites that gave so much for so long.

This museum takes you through a series of rooms where you follow the reenacted story of 10 palmach members who fight for Israel's independence. By the end, you really feel their story. It is not the typical museum since there are no real artifacts that you stand around and read about. Instead you get to relive the experiences of the... More

Learned much about things that are not common knowledge about Jews returning to Israel after WWII. Well worth the visit; informative.

This is a must for any Jew visiting Israel > It gives young (very young) and older ones a fantastic peak into the formative years of the military struggle that was faced. Brief so that it did not go one for ever and with enough info and emotiveness. Do not miss it

This museum is no ordinary museum. Instead of having displays that you walk around and read, the story of the Palmach is told through a movie about a group of fictional Palmach soldiers which is shown chapter-by-chapter as you move between rooms that create the atmosphere of the relevant part of the story (audio translations are available for non-Hebrew speakers)....

The history the Palmach and the struggles of those taking part in those times is a story that needs to be told - the Palmach museum is a unique way of telling the story through movie like sequences that bring to life the events. Each room is a segment in time telling the story through scenery, backdrop, sound effects, and... More
