Nothing about ghetto fighters. Nothing about partisans. Nothing about Jews who formed armed resistance to Nazis and Brits. It's about paintings and art and other 'cute' stuff from the Holocaust. WTF?

The main purpose of the museum to introduce the story of Ghetto Fighters is now expanded to the learning about the start to nazism. Very educational, well organised museum. It takes about 2-3 hours for a whole visit.

I doubt it. Lockers are not readily available in Israel because of security concerns. At best, luggage and belongings can be stored briefly at a hotel or hostel where you have stayed.
